Heat and Safety

Utmost safety and optimum protection at extreme temperatures

Aramid needle felts are the main qualities used in the following areas of application:

Personal protective equipment, e.g. for

  • Protective work clothing
  • Firefighter suits
  • Police forces
  • Armed forces
  • Racing equipment

Welding protection

High-temperature and electronic insulation

When safety is a concern, our needle felts have to possess special characteristics, such as e.g.

  • Heat and cold resistance
  • Resistance to cutting and tearing
  • Stab protection
  • Extreme thermal resistance (short-term up to 530°C)
  • Fire resistance
  • Good insulation properties
  • Protection against flying sparks

Depending on protection classification and area of application we process hightec fibers, e.g.

  • para-aramid
  • meta-aramid
  • preoxidized PAN
  • Dyneema
  • specially flame-retardant viscose
