High Temperature Z-Flex® Fabrics 1650°C

Z-Flex® Fabrics, up to 1,650 °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 °C. Their performances remain unbeaten up to this day.

Z-Flex® fabrics are heat shielding and aluminized. They reflect up to 95 % of radiant energy and protect from high temperatures and radiant heat up to 1,650 °C, however, the aluminized film is not intended for direct contact with temperatures above 175 °C.

Applications of Z-Flex® Fabrics

  • Thermal insulation
  • Insulation of pipes and exhausts
  • Expansion seals
  • Airtight seals
  • Insulation

Benefits of Z-Flex® Fabrics

  • Last longer than other fabrics
  • Better resistance to flexion, tearing and abrasion
  • Optimized reflection of radiant heat
  • Good heat protection
  • Limits flame spread
  • Good resistance to molten metal

Texturized Z-Flex® Fabrics

The Z-Flex® range includes four products with texturized Zetex® filaments and a PTFE coating. They offer great value and superior insulation to protect from extreme heat and to prevent burn-though. 

  • Z-Flex® A-302: The lightest. High insulation capacity against high temperature. Fabrics with a PTFE protective coating (against water and oil) which increases the abrasion to abrasion.

  • Z-Flex® A-601: The most affordable. Medium weight, High insulation capacity against high temperature, excellent flexibility. Texturized Zetex® fabric with a PTFE protective coating (against water and oil) which increases the abrasion to abrasion.

  • Z-Flex® A-801: The thickest (1.22 mm). Optimal insulation and protection. Best protection against thermal convection, sparks and molten metals.

  • Z-Flex® A-802: Derivative from A-801, it is thinner but weights the same. Best protection against radiant heat and high insulation performance.

Non-texturized Z-Flex® Fabrics

The Z-Flex® range includes three products with non-texturized fiberglass fabrics. They are lightweight and flexible. They provide the best value for environments in which radiant heat protection is necessary but convective and conductive heat protection is less of a concern.

  • Z-Flex® F-407: Lining fabric. Resistant, thin, light and affordable. Similar performance than rayon. PTFE protective coating (against water and oil) which increases the abrasion to abrasion.

  • Z-Flex® F-628: The lightest. Fabric in continuous e-glas filament. Protection against radiant heat similar to the one provided by thicker fabrics. Resistant to operating temperature up to 550 °C.

  • Z-Flex® F-781: The most comfortable, optimal puncture and tearing resistance. Lasting lining fabric with satin weave and continuous E-glass fibre.
