Liquid silicone coated fabrics is fiberglass base fabric that has been impregnated with specially bonded silicone rubber on one side of double sides, silicone coating helps to extend the life and in the meanwhile provide better oil and water-resistance as well as abrasion resistance and flame retardation. Silicone coated fiberglass is heat resistant up to 500°F(260°C) and chemical resistant, all these properties make it the desirable material for fabrication of insulation blankets, splash curtains and other high-temperature resistant applications.
Thickness of Liquid silicone coated fabrics is range from 0.01” to 0.03”, width available include 1000mm, 1250mm and 1500mm. Common colors include red, white, black, blue and silver, other colors can be customized.
Liquid silicone coated fabrics in red and white color are typically used as curtains for shrink tunnels and as release liner for baking. Thickness includes 0.25mm and 0.40mm. Surface of silicone-coated fabrics can be glossy or matte, the glossy one is suitable as a nonstick baking liner because the surface is smooth and more anti-slip, it will not leave markings on the baking material and in the meantime provide release property. The matte one is suitable as a curtain for shrink tunnels because its surface is with a light texture and more dust-free.
Liquid silicone coated fabrics in silver color are specially designed for high temperature insulation, standard weight include 17oz and 17.5oz, the material is heat resistant, flame retardant, wear-resistant, chemically inert and easy sewn, have successfully been used in insulation jacket applications.
Liquid silicone coated fabrics in other colors like blue, orange, black are used as flameproof fabric on some constructional engineering, the colors are good to identify material of frames that they are going to wrap. The logo can also be printed on the fabric if needed.
Silicone coated fabrics can also be die-cut into shapes like gasket, strip, washer, insulator and many other designs for custom applications.
