Thermal Ceramics Kao-Tex 2200 AT-30 Sewing Thread
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Kao-Tex styles 2200 and 2500 fabrics, tapes, sleevings, threads, cordages and customized fabrications are woven from continuous-filament fibers. These fibers are a polycrystalline metal oxide that provides strength and flexibility far superior to glass, asbestos, quartz or amorphous silica textiles at or near their service temperatures.

Specially designed fibers provide low thermal conductivity with excellent thermal shock resistance to continuous temperatures up to 2500°F (1371°C). These ceramic fiber textiles have superior strength, good abrasion resistance and integrity, allowing them to withstand combined temperatures while retaining dimensional stability. Ceramic fibers are lightweight, have low thermal conductivity, low thermal mass and immunity to thermal shock.

Fabricated with other Thermal Ceramics fiber insulating products enables custom-engineered thermal systems to customer specifications. Each can be designed for folding, wrapping, and generally conforming to a limitless variety of shapes and sizes.
