Lightweight Ceramic Textiles for Aircraft Seals
HYTEX® 2500 CERAMIC FIBER TEXTILES are very effective high-temperature resistant textiles capable of maintaining a continuous operating temperature of 2500°F • 1370°C.
Manufactured from ceramic fiber yarn with no supportive carrier, HYTEX® 2200 CERAMIC FIBER FABRIC performs beyond the use limits of many other high-temperature textiles and maintains its strength and flexibility at the continuous use limit.
Fire barriers and seals constructed from HYTEX® 2500 are lighter weight than metallic materials, and have successfully passed FAA 2000°F • 1095°C 15 minute flame penetration tests, making them excellent for use in aerospace applications. The low thermal conductivity, resistance to oxidation and high electrical resistivity makes this fabric highly efficient for high-temperature barriers and seals.
