Nextel Ceramic Fibers  
3M™ Nextel™ Continuous Ceramic Oxide Fibers 312, 440, 550, 610 and 720 represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. This family of metal oxide fibers can be readily converted into ceramic textile products which meet demanding performance requirements in high temperature operating environments. Nextel™ Ceramic Textiles are typically used in aerospace, outerspace and industrial applications.

Because the filaments are continuous and strong, Nextel™ Ceramic Textiles can be produced without the aid of other fibers or wire inserts. Rovings, yarns, fabrics, tapes, sleevings and sewing threads are typical products.

Features of 3M™ Nextel™ Fibers:

  • Low elongation at operating temperatures
  • Low shrinkage at operating temperatures
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Thermal shock resistance
  • Low porosity
  • Unique electrical properties
