Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Wire Jacketed Fiberglass Kiln Seals
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant fiberglass kiln door gasket and seal is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1000°F / 520°C.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable. The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.
The seals are then jacketed with a knitted 30 stainless steel wire mesh, providing significant abrasion resistance. Supplied cut to length, each seal can be custom fabricated from a wide variety of diameters and configurations to provide the precise thickness and depth of seal for each U channel design specification. Pre-engineering each seal insures a simple, labor saving solution to the problem of containing heat. This efficient design reduces fuel consumption and eliminates cold spots in brick/tile kilns which can cause some of the brick or tile to be underfired.

Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
