Fothergill Tyglas Glass Fabrics,Knitted Tygasil Fire Blanket.

The range of Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd heat resistant materials covers virtually all thermal insulation and thermal protection applications. They provide cost-effective and, in many cases, safer alternatives to fabrics in current use since they contain no asbestos or respirable fibres.

Tyglas Fire Blanket

Glass fabrics are generally employed as facings for flexible or rigid insulation, having a maximum continuous operating temperature of 550°C. Coated glass fabrics are available for use in the fabrication of flexible ducting, expansion joints and explosion membranes, with differing maximum continuous temperatures, depending on the coating. Special coated fabrics have also been developed for fire blankets to BS EN 1869 (Tyglas FB) and for covering insulation mattresses and valve covers market (Tyglas VC).

Tygasil Fire Blanket

Produced in woven, knitted, and needled mat form, Tygasil silica fabrics have been subjected to a special treatment which increases the silica content to typically a minimum 98%, resulting in a fabric which retains flexibility at the maximum recommended operating temperature of 950°C. These fabrics are excellent for furnace curtains, fire barriers, welding screens and blankets.

Knitted Tygasil Fire Blanket

Combining the features of woven silica with improved flexibility and high insulation properties, knitted Tygasil contains no respirable fibres. Assuring high standards of worker safety and comfort, it provides an efficient and cost-effective replacement for refractory ceramic fibres (RCF’s) in industrial insulation and heat treatment operations.
