Details
  • Made of woven Nextel™ 440 high temperature continuous oxide ceramic fiber
  • Woven tapes are permeable, lightweight, flexible and chemically inert
  • Has stabilized edges due to weave design (closed selvage)
  • Designed to maintain flexibility at extremely high temperatures

3M™ Nextel™ Tape BP-18 is woven from Nextel™ 440 Grade continuous filament ceramic yarn that is designed to maintain strength and flexibility at high temperatures. This product is ideal for insulating or protecting tubes, pipes (or other structures that can be wrapped) in extremely high temperature applications.

3M™ Nextel™ Tape BP-18 is designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrical performance requirements for applications that require a narrow, edge stable woven product. Nextel™ 440 fiber has properties that allow these products to outperform the useful limits of many other high temperature textiles. This is possible because Nextel 440 is inherently oxidation resistant, light weight, electrically insulating and flexible. When it comes to different dimensions, users can choose from a standard width of 2 inches — as well as custom sizes that may be available upon request.
