HHP31 High Temperature Fabric: Heat & Flame Resistant Non-Asbestos Replacement
This high temperature fabric is a non-asbestos replacement fabric, made from high temperature, heat & flame resistant fiberglass fabric with an interwoven stainless steel wire which accounts for 10% of the fabric's weight. If you look carefully at the rightmost photo, you can see the stainless wires.
The interwoven wire provides improved heat dissipation to reduce hot spots; allows the material to provide EMI/RFI protection; provides electrical conductivity for gasket applications; reduces static build-up; and provides added strength when the fabric is used in large sheet format for hanging curtains.
Each yarn is composed of three fiberglass filaments, interwoven with 2 wires, each 304 stainless steel (0.0045" diameter), all twisted together.
This provides a very dense and strong very high temperature wire mesh / fiberglass fabric with excellent tensile strength of 225 lbs Warp and 125 lbs Fill.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable.

Non-Asbestos Replacement Fabric
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
