FiberFrax®: High Temp Gaskets & Insulation
FiberFrax is an excellent high-temperature gasketing and insulation material for businesses looking for a lower-cost alternative to silicone and ManniGlas. Timco Rubber works with you to design and provide custom FiberFrax parts for your applications.
A High-Temp Gasket Material for Extreme Environments
If you need gaskets and insulation that's made for extreme temperatures, FiberFrax may be the right solution for your parts. FiberFrax is a ceramic fiber paper consisting of randomly oriented ceramic fibers held in place with a latex binder system. These products have an operating temperature limit between 400° F and 2,450° F based on product selection, making FiberFrax an excellent solution when standard solutions like silicone rubber gaskets or other materials aren't enough.
Another advantage of FiberFrax is it's flexibility, both in terms of manufacturing and mechanical properties. Blending different fibers, binders, and additives allows for a variety of FiberFrax paper products. FiberFrax is also easy to wrap, shape, and die cut, making it a possible gasketing and insulating solution for applications with tight fits and complicated designs.
