3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric EF-19 is a woven fabric made from 3M™ Nextel™ 720 Grade continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber that is designed to maintain strength under a variety of extremely high temperature conditions. Our Nextel structural fabric EF-19 outperforms the useful limits of other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.
3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric EF-19 is a woven fabric made from 3M™ Nextel™ 720 high temperature continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber. Nextel 720 fiber outperforms the useful limits of many other high temperature textiles by being medium weight and electrically insulating – and having good thermo-mechanical properties. Nextel structural fabric EF-19 is often used to reinforce ceramic matrix composites (CMC), metal matrix composites (MMC), or polymer matrix composites (PMC). These composites have exceptional strength and stiffness as well as high temperature capabilities. 3M™ Nextel™ Style EF Woven Ceramic Fabrics are designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrically non-conductive performance requirements. Applications Reinforcement for high temperature structural composites Polymer matrix composites (PMC) Metal matrix composites (MMC) Ceramic matrix composites (CMC) High temperature gasket and sealing High temperature fuel cell components
