High Silica Fabrics

The High Silica Fabric made by RNG Performance Materials, India, is an extreme high temperature resistant flexible fabric, specially developed to be used in applications like welding where protection from heat or molten metal spills is required. A High Temperature Silica Cloth like the one manufactured at RNG Performance Materials, India is typically used in environments with demanding temperatures, mostly found in the industrial sector.


The reason why a High Silica Fabric is so much in demand over other protective industrial fabrics is that it remains flexible even when exposed to high temperatures while providing the utmost protection to the wearer. From welding to metal cutting and more, a High Temperature Silica Cloth is highly beneficial.


Benefits of High Silica Fabric:

  • High resistance to temperature upto 1600 °C

  • Thermal Shrinkage is less

  • Electrical conductivity is low


High Temperature Silica Cloth has wide-spread applications and is used in various industries like, metallurgy, building rockets, building aircrafts, building ships, the car industry, machine building and even atomic energy.


Here are the applications for the High Silica Fabric:

  • Welding and Fire Blanket

  • Thermal and Electrical Insulation

  • Gasketing

  • Expansion Joints

  • Heat shields

  • Containment

  • Door Seals

  • The inner lining of switch boxes


The High Silica Cloth we manufacture, has over 96% Amorphous Silica. The fabric does not contain asbestos or ceramic and is flexible with the ability to withstand high temperatures.


Following are the Features of High Silica Fabric -

  • Chemical resistant
