AVS manufactures high temperature textiles (fabrics, insulation and sewing threads) with or without specialty coatings to be used for the Cold Face (Outside), Middle (Insulation), and Hot Face (Inside) layers. These textiles are used with our Sewing Threads in high temperature applications.

Textile fabrication is the manufacturing of high temperature textile parts to provide thermal protection for personal or equipment safety. This consists of thermal protection covers, expansion joints, welding protection blankets, tube seals, and turbo covers to name a few. It is imperative to determine the maximum operating temperature for the end use application so that the appropriate precautions can be taken to design the best textile to meet all thermal and functional criteria. Textile fabricated parts are designed in unlimited sizes and thicknesses.

Most textile parts or thermal protective covers have a minimum of three layers Cold Face (Outside), Insulation (Middle), and Hot Face (Inside).

Aluminized Fiberglass Fabrics

Manufactured from an E-glass plain weave fiberglass fabric that has been heat treated to remove any residual chemicals and sizing additives from the weaving process. A thin layer of aluminum foil or aluminized Mylar is laminated to one side of the fabric using a high temperature adhesive. The reflective layer will reduce the backside (cold side) temperature by approximately 150°F (65°C).
