Textile products (industrial)
In our own production facility in Temse (Belgium) we produce high temperature textile products. This includes a wide range of custom-made insulation and sealing materials. Different types of raw materials are being used (glass fibres, low bio-persistent, silica, ceramic fibres, etc.) to be able to supply our customers with a complete range of products.
Worldwide our high temperature textile products (E-Glass, Vitrolux, HT-Glass (Ecotex®750 HT), Ecomab®, Ecosil and Keramab®) are applied as door seals in boilers, ovens and reformers, seals between filter elements, seals for continuous casting, insulation of gas and steam turbines, kiln car seals, etc. All these products are manufactured on our highly advanced installation which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.
Our textile products are available in several product forms, such as:
Braided and knitted packings
Fabrics and tapes
Fibre ropes and joints
Golden Super Rope
GPE impregnated almost gastight textiles
Ultimate Ring Seals (Endless Textile Rings)
Low bio persistent textiles
As alternative for ceramic fibre textiles (Keramab®) we can supply textiles made out of Ecomab® low bio persistent yarns. Ecomab® products are not classified under directive GHS/CLP (Nota Q). Therefore, labelling and special precautions during processing and packaging are not required.
Depending on specific needs textile products can be manufactured to your liking. For example, braided packings can be supplied in round, square or rectangular sections. Some variations can be impregnated with PTFE, graphite or other special coatings.
