SILICA CLOTH TYPES SIL-1, SIL-2, & SIL-3

(PDF VERSION)

GENERAL INFORMATION

ZIRCAR Type SIL Silica Cloths consists of high temperature  non textured amorphous silica fiber yarn, woven into an extremely strong fabrics. These non preshrunk textiles are ideal for applications with continuous use up to 1250C (2300F) or occasional excursions up to 1600C(3000F). These silica textiles are strong and easy to work with. They exhibit good handleability and remain flexible in numerous high temperature applications. They are extremely flexible and are resistant to most chemicals.

Type SIL cloths are useful where non-RCF textiles are desired. 

Type SIL Silica Cloths meet Mil Spec MII-C-24576 type 1, Class 2.
