3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-40 is woven from 3M™ 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-40 outperforms the useful limits of other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.
3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-40 is a woven from 3M™ Nextel™ 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn. Due to the properties of Nextel 312 fiber, this product outperforms the useful temperature limits of many other textiles, is medium weight, electrically insulating and flexible. Nextel fabric AF-40 has medium air permeability and is often used as a component in thermal barrier constructions. It is used in combination with other Nextel products such as sewing thread and high temperature materials such as bulk fiber/insulation products to construct thermal barrier components.
