SILCAVER fibres are glass filaments.

SILCAVER products are outstandingly soft and ductile, do not cause any irritation of the skin and are harmless in respect of health. SILCAVER fibres are converted to

  • Ropes
  • Tapes

SILCAVER products are non-combustible and have good thermal insulating properties as well as chemical stability to a large extent. These properties open up a wide spectrum of opportunities for use including:

  • Sealing of inspection hatches
  • Sealing of boilers and furnace doors

Our Technical Department will be pleased to advise you on the selection of the best material. For high-temperature application our SILCAFLEX textiles are also available to you as an alternative.
