Monofilament Ceramic Fibres

Ceramic Fibres

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.

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.
