Dalfratex® is a range of inorganic fibres and textiles that are capable of operating continuously at 1000°C and up to 1600°C for limited periods.
It is available in many forms such as:
– Textile cloths,
– Braided packings,
– Bulk fibres & batts.
They will not melt or vaporize until temperature exceeds 1700°C, and have a high resistance to thermal shock.
Dalfratex products also provide flexible electrical insulation at temperatures as high as 1000°C. They are composed of continuous filaments of amorphous silica, which combine the flexibility of fibres and textiles, with the refractory properties of silica.
In order to service the needs of a wide range of applications the majority of Dalfratex products are available in two basic forms – standard and pre-shrunk. The standard form shrinks during initial heating and products of this type have letter ‘U’ incorporated into the code number. As their name implies, the pre-shrunk forms have been factory treated to confer better dimensional stability in high temperature use.
In addition to these forms a wide range of sacrificial organic finishes are available which may be applied to particular products where required for specific end uses.
