3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Insulation Fabrics

rfq

Woven ceramic fabrics and woven industrial fabrics from 3M™ allow engineers and designers with high temperature applications to create new, imaginative solutions for previously impossible problems.

3M™ Nextel™ Woven Ceramic Fabrics are designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrical performance requirements. Nextel™ Woven Ceramic Fabrics outperform the useful limits of other high temperature textiles such as aramids, carbon, glass or quartz. Nextel™ woven ceramic fabrics are engineered to perform at continuous temperatures of 2000°F (1093°C) or higher depending on application and composition.
When used in industrial furnaces, Nextel™ Woven Ceramic Fabrics can serve as thermal barriers to separate different temperature zones or the fabrics can serve to prevent particulate shedding.

Features of 3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers:

  • Low elongation at operating temperatures
  • Low shrinkage at operating temperatures
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Thermal shock resistance
  • Low porosity
  • Unique electrical properties

Some typical applications of Nextel™ Woven Ceramic Fabrics are:

3M™ Nextel™ 550, Nextel™ 610, Nextel™ 720 Continuous Filament Ceramic Oxide Fibers
3M™ Nextel™ Range of Continuous Filament Ceramic Oxide Fibers represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. These metal oxide fibers can be readily converted into textiles, which meet demanding performance requirements in high temperature operating environments.

Fabrics, paper, tapes, sleevings and yarn are typical products. Additionally, the fibers have low elongation and shrinkage at operating temperatures, which allow for a dimensionally stable product to be made. These novel fibers also offer good chemical resistance, low thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance, low porosity and unique electrical properties.

Because the filaments are continuous and strong, ceramic oxide textiles can be produced without the aid of other fibers or wire inserts.
