Ambler, PA, United States, 2011/04/22 - Heat-resistant, fiberglass cloth products remain incombustible even when exposed to temperatures of 1000°F; designed for use on welding curtains, fire blankets, insulation blankets, industrial and marine lagging, asbestos cloth substitute and more.
A line of non-flammable fiberglass cloth products, engineered to withstand temperatures up to 1000° F., is available from AGIS, LLC, manufacturer/distributor of high temperature industrial sealing products.
AGIS’ Premium Fiberglass Cloth is designed for use in foundry, metalworking, heat-treating and other industrial applications requiring an incombustible high temperature fabric. Recommended uses include: welding curtains, fire blankets, insulation blankets, industrial and marine lagging, asbestos cloth substitute and drape cloth, among others.
AGIS’ cloth meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements for incombustible materials and will not burn or smolder.
In contrast to many high temperature fabrics, AGIS’ Fiberglass Cloth is exceptionally strong; it exhibits one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any industrial textile. Even under service conditions where temperatures reach 1000° F, AGIS’ Cloth retains 25% of its tensile strength.
AGIS’ Fiberglass Cloth is a plain, tightly woven cloth manufactured from texturized fiberglass yarn; it contains no compound, cement or wire. In the manufacturing process, a proprietary heat treatment technique is applied to the surface, which renders the cloth free of most surface grit, virtually eliminates "picking" of the skin, and facilitates handling. A non-fraying selvage edge is standard.
Because of its unusual characteristics, AGIS’ Cloth is readily cut, formed and sewn for many industrial applications.
AGIS’ Cloth's non-cellular composition also renders it moisture-resistant. Unlike other gasketing or insulating materials, the product will not swell, stretch, shrink, deteriorate or change chemically even after long exposure to water.
AGIS’ Cloth (agismfg.com) is available in various weights (8.5 to 40 ounces per square yard); finishes (heat-treated, waterproofed, weave set, renwet and/or flameproof); coatings (neoprene, vinyl and Teflon®, and constructions (aluminized on one side for thermal reflection; with brass or stainless steel wire inserts for increased tensile strength). Standard roll length: 50 yards.
