  • 3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers and Textiles High Temperature Applications
    High Temperature Applications

    Nextel products retain their strength and flexibility at temperatures up to 2372ºF (1300ºC), outperforming the useful limits of other high temperature textiles. With a combination of low thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance and electrical resistance at high temperatures, Nextel products offer a proven solution for fire protection, seals and other heat resistant components.

  • 3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers and Textiles Structural Reinforcement for Composites
    Structural Reinforcement for Composites

    Nextel ceramic fibers are used as structural reinforcements in a variety of metal, ceramic and polymer composites, making them stiffer and stronger. Nextel structural ceramic fibers offer high creep resistance, low shrinkage and very high compressive strength. Suitable for load-bearing applications, the resulting composites withstand higher temperatures than metals, at a lighter weight.
