Weight: 1080 g/m2
Thickness: 1.3 mm
Useable Width: 1000 mm
Roll Length: 25 mtr
Maximum operating temperature: 1000 degrees Celsius
Treatment / Coating details: 80 g/m2 vermiculite dispersion, evenly distributed across both sides.
The mineral based aqueous dispersion treatment provides a coating of platelets which at high temperatures meld to protect the glass fibres from a direct heat source, for example the cloth will hold molten metal at temperatures up to 1000 C long enough for it to cool and solidify. After exposure to such a temperature the cloth will have embrittled locally
