Material specification:

Silicate fabric


Vermiculite / Weldblock

Application temperature:

up to 1100 °C


600 - 1500 g/m²

The silTEX® silicate fabrics are made from high-quality SiO2 special yarns with a high silicon oxide content. The additional Vermiculite-Weldblock finish makes the material more hard-wearing when it comes to mechanical stresses and ensures optimal protection for welding and cutting work up to 1600 °C.

We would be happy to advise you personally on this.
