Details
  • Flexible fabric woven from 3M™ Nextel™ 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn
  • Good mechanical properties at high temperatures
  • Thermally and chemically stable
  • Thermal shock resistant
  • Electrically insulating and low thermal conductivity

3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-62 is woven from Nextel 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn that is designed to maintain strength and flexibility under a variety of extremely high temperature conditions. Our Nextel fabric AF-62 outperforms the useful limits of other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.

3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-62 is woven from Nextel 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn and is designed to withstand continuous high temperatures. With these properties, it can act as a flame barrier. Due to the unique properties of Nextel 312 fiber, this product outperforms the temperature limits of many other textiles, is thick, electrically insulating and flexible. Due to a unique double layer design construction and high air permeability, Nextel fabric AF-62 is an excellent component in burner applications. Among Nextel 312 fabrics, our Nextel fabric AF-62 is the thickest. This means that it is well-suited as a component in composite flexible seals, couplings and gaskets that need higher thickness.

3M™ Nextel™ Style AF woven ceramic fabrics are designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrical performance requirements. They are heat, flame and oxidation resistant; and chemically resistant, lightweight, electrically insulating and flexible.

Applications

  • Furnace curtains and zone dividers
  • Furnace and duct linings
