Monofilament ceramic


Overview of monofilament ceramic

The monofilament ceramic fibre is continuous and polycrystalline. It is composed of alumina, silica and boron oxide. This continuous metal oxide-composed fibre is easy to convert into ceramic textiles for applications in high temperature environments.

Composed of continuous and resistant filaments, monofilament ceramic textiles are rough-and are not reinforced. This fibre also has a very low elongation and shrinkage rate thanks to its application temperature. As a result, manufacture is dimensionally stable. This continuous fibre demonstrates a mechanical and thermal performance that fibrous materials do not achieve, such as aramid, silica, quartz or glass. In addition, this fibre has excellent chemical resistance, excellent dielectric strength, low thermal conductivity, good thermal shock resistance and low porosity. It is mainly used in the aerospace, automotive, electrical and petrochemical industries.

Mechanical and physical properties

Monofilament ceramic fibres are characterised by excellent dimensional stability thanks to their low shrinkage and elongation rate.

Moisture uptake

Moisture absorption of monofilament ceramic fibres is extremely low. Thanks to their non-porous surface, the fibres are able to retain a maximum of 0.08% of their weight in water.

Advantage

  • Low elongation rate
  • Low retraction rate.
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Excellent dielectric strength
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Excellent resistance to thermal shock
  • Low porosity


Applications of monofilament ceramic

  • Thermal shield
  • Fire barrier
  • Thermal insulation
  • Electrical insulation
  • Composite reinforcement
  • Sealing and insulation


Monofilament ceramic products

Our threads

Monofilament ceramic threads are primarily designed for thermal, electrical and mechanical applications subjected to extreme conditions. Composed mainly of Al2O3 at different percentages, the 080-0600 strips withstand continuous temperatures up to 1370°C. They are used for the manufacture of fire safety equipment and electrical or chemical insulators.

Our strips

080-0700 monofilament ceramic strips are resistant to continuous temperatures up to 1170°C. They are particularly suitable for the insulation and protection of cables, tubes and pipes and to strengthen packaged products. A Heat Cleaned coated version is available to limit irritations for customised applications as well as flying fibres and the amount of smoke generated during exposure to high temperatures.
