Thermal Ceramics


High temperature textiles for applications requiring thermal shock and abrasion resistance.

We offer a range of woven textile products many manufactured with our high temperature Superwool® and Cera® bulk insulating fibres.

Our textile products are made using refractory insulating fibres and organic or non-organic binders to create a yarn. This yarn can then be woven into products such as cloth, cable rope, rope lagging, twisted rope, webbing and ladder tape.

Our range comprises of the following fibre grades:

  • Superwool® Low Biopersistent Fibres (LBP)
    • Alkaline Earth Silicate Fibre (AES):
      • Superwool Plus classification temperature of 1200°C (2192°F)
      • Superwool HT classification temperature of 1300°C (2372°F)
  • Refractory Ceramic Fibres:
    • Kao-Tex™ and Kaowool® classification temperature up to 1370°C (2500°F)

Textile Product Data Sheets

Our textile products offer excellent resistance to thermal shock and abrasion, and are asbestos free. They are used in manufacturing, chemical processing, power generation and construction, in applications such as:

  • Welding curtains in steel fabrication
  • Fire blankets for commercial and domestic kitchens
  • Smoke and fire curtains in buildings
  • Kiln car, expansion joint and door seals in furnaces
  • Gaskets in furnaces and domestic appliances
  • Flexible expansion compensators in power generation equipment
  • Removable, flexible thermal insulation quilts for pipe work and valves in the petrochemical industry

We work with our customers to engineer thermal systems to individual specifications. We design thermal systems for folding, wrapping, and conforming to a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
