The Insulcon Group

Leader in high temperature solutions - Refractories, Wearflex Expansion Bellows, Refrex and Textile Products

  • Textile products (industrial)

    In our own production facility in Temse (Belgium) we produce high temperature textile products. This includes a wide range of custom-made insulation and sealing materials. Different types of raw materials are being used (glass fibres, low bio-persistent, silica, ceramic fibres, etc.) to be able to supply our customers with a complete range of products.

    Worldwide our high temperature textile products (E-Glass, Vitrolux, HT-Glass (Ecotex®750 HT), Ecomab®, Ecosil and Keramab®) are applied as door seals in boilers, ovens and reformers, seals between filter elements, seals for continuous casting, insulation of gas and steam turbines, kiln car seals, etc. All these products are manufactured on our highly advanced installation which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

    Editing techniques

    Our textile products are available in several product forms, such as:

    Braided and knitted packings
    Fabrics and tapes
    Fibre ropes and joints
    Golden Super Rope
    GPE impregnated almost gastight textiles
    Twisted ropes
    Sleevings
    Ultimate Ring Seals (Endless Textile Rings)
    Wearflex® tadpoles

    Low bio persistent textiles

    As alternative for ceramic fibre textiles (Keramab®) we can supply textiles made out of Ecomab® low bio persistent yarns. Ecomab® products are not classified under directive GHS/CLP (Nota Q). Therefore, labelling and special precautions during processing and packaging are not required.

    Special variations

    Depending on specific needs textile products can be manufactured to your liking. For example, braided packings can be supplied in round, square or rectangular sections. Some variations can be impregnated with PTFE, graphite or other special coatings.
