S-TEX Silica Cloth (Loomstate)

  • Silica cloth made by weaving continuous filament silica yarns offer excellent protection from radiant heat and molten metal splash.
  • They differ from textured silica cloths by being smooth in appearance and more densely woven which increases their tensile strength.
  • Silica cloth resists continuous temperatures up to 1000°C, do not vitrify and are recommended as substitutions to ceramic cloth. If exposed to high levels of abrasion and vibration the integrity of the fabric is lost at lower temperatures.
  • Vermiculite dispersions can also be added to improve resistance to molten splash if required.
  • Silica fabrics have good chemical resistance except hydrofluoric acid, phosphor acid, and hydrochloric acids and also alkali Mg (magnesium), Na (sodium) and Si (silicon).
  • Silica cloth is incombustible according to DIN 4102 A2.
