3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric DF-13-4500 is a woven fabric made from 3M™ Nextel™ 610 Grade continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber that is designed to maintain strength under a variety of extremely high temperature conditions. Our Nextel structural fabric DF-13-4500 outperforms the useful limits of other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.

3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric DF-13-4500 is a woven fabric made from 3M™ Nextel™ 610 high temperature continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber. Nextel 610 fiber outperforms the useful limits of many other high temperature textiles. It is light weight, electrically insulating and has good thermo-mechanical properties. Nextel structural fabric DF-13-4500 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.
