Woven Glass Insulation Introduced By HITCO— Literature Available

Fabrisil is the trade name for a family of fiberglass textile insulation offering exceptional versatility to industry in temperature control applications to 1,000 F. Introduced by HITCO, the woven glass family complements the company's existing line of Refrasil engineered silica textiles for insulation uses above 1,000 F to as high as 3,100 F. These glassbased textiles offer a unique combination of properties for insulation requirements, states HITCO, citing flexibility, ease of fabrication, noncombustibility, resistance to most chemicals, imperviousness to moisture degradation, and high dielectric strength.

Applications for the versatile fabrics include: insulation lagging; welding shields and stress relieving pads; refinery fire blankets; removable valve and flange covers; molten metal spray and splash shields; protection for pipe, meter lines, hose, wire and cable; and gasketing, seals and curtains for ovens, furnaces and kilns.

Aiding this versatility, Fabrisil and Refrasil are offered in cloth, tape, sleeving, and rope forms and a wide choice of special finishes and coatings. They are available through a nationwide network of HITCO distributors for singlesource availability on high-temperature textile insulations. HITCO is a subsidiary of Armco, steelmaker and diversified manufacturer.
