Thermal Ceramics Kao-Tex HD Rope 2000
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Kao-Tex 2000 textiles are made from alumina-silica ceramic fibers that are reinforced with an organic carrier fiber for added strength and stability, making them an excellent choice for industrial applications. The nature of the engineered yarns and weave types, provide excellent strength, resulting in a physically resilient material well suited to high temperature industrial applications.

Kao-Tex 2000 Textile contains 20% organic carriers that burn out at approximately 400°F causing some smoking and outgassing. Additionally, a fiberglass continuous filament is contained in the yarn for improved handbility during installation and lower temperatures. This material will degrade at 1200°F.

Kao-Tex textiles exhibit excellent chemical stability resisting attack from most corrosive agents. Exceptions are hydrofluoric and phosphorous acids and concentrated alkalis. Kao-Tex textiles also resist oxidation and reduction.
