Applications of Silicone Coated Fiberglass

Oct. 26, 2022

Silicone-coated fiberglass fabrics are manufactured for use in a range of applications where high heat or flame resistance is required, as well as high levels of resistance against abrasion, chemicals, UV rays and weather conditions that could cause damage.  Throughout this blog post, we will look at the properties of silicone-coated fiberglass and what applications it is used in.

 

Applications of Silicone Coated Fiberglass

The Properties of Silicone-Coated Fiberglass

Silicone-coated fiberglass can be beneficial for several reasons.

● Abrasion and Corrosion Resistant

● Chemical Resistant

● Durable (working temperatures of -70oC to 550oC)

● Flexible

● Flame Resistant

● Heat Resistant

● Oil and Water Resistant

● Weather Resistant

● Weight Range (7 oz/sy to 90 oz/sy)

 

In addition to the above properties, we are able to produce silicone-coated fabrics in a range of colors, and they can be customized to suit your specific needs.

 

The Applications of Silicone-Coated Fiberglass

Silicone-coated fiberglass is made of glass fiber cloth and coated with silicone rubber. Often referred to as silicone-coated fiberglass cloth, the fabric is typically engineered for use in industrial applications where high levels of resistance are required against extreme temperatures, flames and chemicals.

 

Aerospace Industry

Fiberglass fabrics are ideal in specific applications such as airbags, aircraft walkways, cargo covers and onboard flame retardant fabrics. Heat-resistant fabrics are vital for keeping personnel and equipment safe but are also high in strength.

 

Industrial Protection

Silicone-coated fabric can be used to protect both machinery and workers from high temperatures. This includes conveyor belts of drying machines, equipment covers, gaskets, lining and liners in equipment and welding curtains.

 

Aluminum Industry

Due to the high resistance properties of fiberglass,  silicone-coated fabrics and ropes are frequently utilized in the aluminum industry. It is used to manufacture external cathode bar seal boots, anode bar seals, crucible lid seals and other components for every area of a primary aluminum smelter. 

 

Thermal Insulation

As an insulation product, the silicone-coated fabric is an ideal choice because of its chemical and heat-resistant properties.
