- Mats and Felts
Newtex offers a range of mats and felts designed for high temperature insulation including glass mat, silica mat, silicate fiber mat, ceramic insulation, and oxidized pan (OPAN) felt. These high temperature mats and felts are specifically engineered for high temperature industrial insulation and can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from 1000°F to 2300°F / 540°C to 1260°C.
High temperature mats and felts are commonly used as high temperature insulation to conserve energy, improve operational efficiency, reduce noise, and protect workers around industrial furnaces, ovens, power generation equipment, and other high temperature equipment. High temperature insulation materials are also used in insulated protective apparel, like fire entry suits.
Newtex’s high temperature insulation materials are flame resistant, asbestos-free, and are used in a wide variety of thermal management applications.
High Temperature Insulation Options:
- Silica and Glass Mat: Needled silica fibers and glass mat are both used in high temperature insulation and sound suppression applications. Glass Mat can withstand temperatures up to 1200°F/650°C, and Silica Mat can withstand higher temperatures up to 1800°F/980°C
- Ceramic Insulation: Needled ceramic fiber blanket is lightweight and provides excellent thermal management up to 2600°F / 1430°C. Ceramic insulation is the highest temperature insulation that Newtex offers.
- Panther Felt™: OPAN fiber felt is durable, chemical resistant, and easy to cut and sew. Panther Felt™ withstands temperatures up to 1800°F/980°C.
Mats and Felts for High Temperature Insulation
Silica and glass high temperature mats are intended for industrial insulation applications up to 1800°F / 980°C.
Ceramic Insulation provides excellent lightweight high temperature insulation up to 2400°F/1316°C.
Panther Felt™ is an inherently flame resistant felt insulation woven from PAN fiber, a precursor to carbon fiber.
