Fibreglass Cloth Withstands Temperatures to 1,000°F

03 December 2004

A line of heat-resistant, fibreglass cloth products for high-temperature industrial applications have been developed from Pars Manufacturing Company.

Parglass Fibreglass Cloth is a plain, tightly woven cloth manufactured from texturized fibreglass yarn; it contains no compound, cement or wire. Engineered to withstand temperatures up to 1000 degrees F, Parglass fibreglass cloth meets United States Coast Guard requirements for incombustible materials.

The material retains 25% of tensile strength, according to Pars, even when service conditions reach 1,000°F, and will not swell, shrink, deteriorate, or change chemically. Available in weights from 8.5–40 oz/yd², product can be aluminized on one side for thermal reflection or have brass or stainless steel wire inserts for increased tensile strength.

Recommended uses include welding curtains, fire blankets, insulation blankets, industrial and marine lagging, asbestos cloth substitute and drape cloth, among others.

Parglass Cloth is available in a variety of weights (8.5 to 40 ounces per square yard), finishes (heat-treated, waterproofed, weave set, renwet and/or flameproof), coatings (neoprene, vinyl, Teflon., and constructions (aluminized on one side for thermal reflection; with brass or stainless steel wire inserts for increased tensile strength).
