Z-Block® Fabrics 980°C

Z-Block® Fabrics with Silicon Coating, up to 980 °C

Our partner Newtex offers a wide range of fire resistant and temperature resistant products since 1978. The Zetex® and ZetexPlus® ranges present a great variety of heat resistant textiles which can withstand temperatures up to 1,095 °C. Their performances remain unbeaten up to this day.

Z-Block® fabric are high temperature polymer coated fiberglass fabrics treated with a proprietary formulation of fire retardants and finished with a high temperature silicone overcoat (SOC). Z-Block® high temperature fabrics offer exceptional resistance to fire, smoke, abrasion, UV, and adverse weather. Z-Block® is formulated with inorganic materials and will not produce hazardous outgassing.

This heat resistant fabric is designed for use in fire and smoke curtains, fire containment covers, and custom smoke and fire protection systems. When exposed to flame in these applications, the coating develops a protective high temperature silica layer that prevents flame penetration at temperatures up to 980 °C.

Applications of Silicon-Coated Z-Block® Fabrics

  • Heat protection
  • Fireproof curtains
  • Fireproof blankets
