3M™ Nextel™ roving is comprised of 3M™ Nextel™ 720 Grade continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber that is designed to maintain strength under a variety of very high temperature conditions. The 3M Nextel roving portfolio outperforms the useful limits of many other fibers for extremely high temperature strength in industrial, aerospace and other applications.
3M™ Nextel™ Roving 720 is comprised of 720 continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber. The roving styles are 1500, 3000 and 10000 denier. This material is designed to maintain strength while withstanding continuous high temperatures. Nextel roving 720 is ideal as a fiber reinforcement for extremely high temperature composites. This roving can be used as an input material to make textiles to meet user needs. 3M Nextel Ceramic Fibers represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. The roving can be used to make a variety of ceramic textiles including fabrics, tapes, sleevings and sewing threads. Because the fibers are flexible, continuous and strong, textiles can be produced without the aid of other fibers or wire inserts.
