CERAMIC FIBER ROPE
Ceramic Fiber Rope
heat resistant gasketing for extreme high temperature and corrosive service conditions
Twisted, Square Braid and Round Braid
AGIS Ceramic Fiber Rope is a soft, pliable material designed for gasketing, packing and sealing applications in the chemical, petrochemical, foundry, metalworking, heat treating and other industries where extreme high temperatures and/or corrosive service conditions are common.
Recommended applications include furnace linings, gas turbine muffler
seals, expansion joint seals, insulation for laboratory ovens, gasketing for
pollution control equipment and vacuum degassing equipment; super heater
seals; gasketing and seals for doors on industrial boilers, wood burning
stoves, coke ovens and furnaces, among other applications.
AGIS Ceramic Fiber Rope is manufactured by twisting or braiding
long-staple, high-strength alumina and silica fibers together with an
organic carrier. The carrier, which comprises about 20% of the fiber, is
included to facilitate carding. At low temperatures, the carrier burns out
without affecting the properties of the ceramic fiber.
AGIS Ceramic Fiber
Rope is lightweight, low in thermal conductivity, immune to thermal shock,
resistant to flame erosion, chemically stable, highly resilient at working
temperatures, and maintains its tensile strength even after prolonged
exposure to high temperatures
The product is available in a normal, three-play twisted form, which
is suitable for most applications; in high density twisted form for
applications requiring greater abrasion resistance; and in square or round
braided configurations, where greater density and increased resiliency are
Options include: encasement in wire mesh for additional abrasion
resistance or with graphite coating for increased lubricity.
AGIS Ceramic Fiber Rope is manufactured in diameters ranging from ¼"
to 2" (in 1/8" increments) and is packed in standard containers of 10
and 25 pounds. Length varies with diameter: for example, a 10-pound
container of twisted rope, ¼" diameter, is about 950 feet; a 25-pound
container of round braid rope, 2" diameter, is about 50 feet.
