High Silica (SiO2) Content Fibres

Textile Technologies Europe Ltd offer a range of textiles made from a number of fibres which have a high % of SiO2 (Silicon Dioxide) within their chemical make up. It is the high percentage of SiO2 that gives these fibres resistance to high or extreme temperatures. Indeed the higher the SiO2 % the higher the temperature rating associated with the fibre (generally speaking) though what the remaining chemical components are, do have importance especially when considering other factors like tensile strength etc.
