    3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric EF-11 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-11 outperforms the useful limits of other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.

     

    3M™ Nextel™ Structural Fabric EF-11 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 light weight and electrically insulating — and having good thermo-mechanical properties. Nextel structural fabric EF-11 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.
