3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fiber Roving Style 312 is a true ceramic composed of flexible continuous ceramic oxide fibers invented by 3M for use in high temperature environments to provide thermal and electical heat protection.
3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. These yarns are the basis for 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. These textiles are typically used in industrial, aerospace, and electrical applications .
