Heat Treated (T)
up to 550 °C
200 - 1000 g/m²
Heat treated or caramelized glass fabric is made from standard woven glass fibers and undergone an additional finishing stage in which the fabric is passed through a high temperature oven. This process burns off the small amount of weaving oils and lubricants (sizing) present on standard fiberglass yarns. This procedure can also help remove surface fibers, which can help reduce irritation from handling.
This process results in the light brown or "caramel" color of the fabric. Caramelised glass fabric is often specified when fumes or “outgassing” cannot occur during the final products first heat cycle, or in some applications where the weaving oils and lubricants may interfere with adhesion to other products.
We would be happy to advise you personally on this.
