Aramid Fibre Fabrics 500°C

Fabrics 500°C

Plain weaved 100% para-aramid fabrics have excellent thermal characteristics. In addition to their good insulating properties, they can withstand a peak temperature of 500°C and a continuous temperature of 350°C. Added to this are excellent resistance to cutting, abrasion, tearing and acids, as well as excellent mechanical properties. Available in different versions ; aluminized, fleece, etc. they are particularly suitable for the manufacture of protective clothing and thermal insulation.

The standard version is 100% para-aramid Kevlar® fabrics, but there is also a cross-twill woven version, two simple twillings oriented in different directions. Particularly resistant to high temperatures up to 450°C and cuts, it is mainly used for reinforcement of protective clothing. Coated versions ; silicone, aluminium, flame retardant, etc. are available.

A good alternative to 100% aramid fabrics is 70% Panox® / 30% Kevlar® twill. The fiber is an oxidized, thermally stable, polyacrylonitrile fiber. This fiber mixture allows the textile to withstand up to a temperature of 400°C continuously (max temperature 600°C). It is particularly suitable for use against sparks and projected materials. On the other hand, its mechanical properties are inferior to a 100% para-aramid fabric. It is mainly used in the manufacture of seats for the rail and air industries. An aluminium version is also available.
