Description

Durable, heat-tolerant and strong, Sudaglass basalt roving delivers exceptional properties whether used in woven, filled or chopped configurations. • Good tensile strength • High E-modulus provides specific tenacity exceeding steel fibers by many times • Very high temperature tolerance–maintains integrity at sustained temperatures up to 1800°F/982°C • Low elongation under load • No carcinogenic risks • Easily manufactured in various tex values from 68 to 4600 • Will not split longitudinally • Inert, corrosion-resistant and non-toxic • Very high resistance to chemicals, alkaline, acid and solvents • Immune to nuclear radiation, UV light and biologic contamination • Good elasticity and fatigue resistance • Low friction coefficient Ideal for high-performance applications: • Superior performance as an automotive muffler filler, delivering intense heat and sound absorption • Continuous strand reinforcement for composites to improve integral strength and provide high temperature tolerance • Specialty woven fabrics for fire protection and containment • High-pressure/high-temperature pipeline and vessel reinforcement • Can be chopped into various strand lengths for remanufacture into value-added products • Immunity to radiation makes it ideal for insulation applications in nuclear power generation plants and x-ray apparatus
