Epoxy fiber (texolite) is made of high quality and fine-textured fiberglass fabric reinforced with epoxy resin.
First, we examine fiberglass and epoxy resin.
Fiberglass refractory fabric is a type of fiberglass fiber that is reinforced with plastic. Fiberglass is made of different types of fiberglass and is composed of silica and silicate with different amounts of calcium and magnesium oxides.
Fiberglass fabric has several uses, some of which we will mention:
As thermal insulation, electrical insulation in the electronics industry
In armor on military vehicles, helmets, and aircraft carrier decks
Lightweight fiberglass fabrics also have smooth end sections and are ideal for producing a waterproof layer on wood or other surfaces, including:
Needed for repairing boats, ships and other marine applications.
For interior spaces of circuit boards and conveyor belts
One of the best features of fiberglass refractory fabric is its excellent resistance to heat and can withstand up to 1500 degrees Celsius.
Properties of epoxy resin
These resins have many applications due to their special properties and are used in many industries. Here are some of the unique properties of these resins. Stay with us until the end of the article.
Proper resistance to strong acids
Can be used at home
High mechanical strength against various forces
Non-flammability of epoxy resin; But, it is not fireproof.
Rubber pressure tolerance of 5 tons per square centimeter
Conductivity; Of course, it can also be used as a current insulator.
No sticking of fat and all kinds of contamination to its surface
High temperature resistance after drying; It can withstand up to 60 degrees Celsius continuously and can withstand 80 degrees Celsius momentarily.
Refractory fiber has properties such as low water absorption (less than fibrous fiber), high strength and impact resistance and heat resistance of 180 degrees Celsius.
