Glassfiber Filter Bags
Glassfiber filter cloth is one of the strongest textile fibers, having greater specific tensile strength than steel wire of the same diameter, at a lower weight.
Glassfiber Filter cloth has low elongation under load, generally 3% or less. Glass fibers produce fabrics with excellent dimensional stability under various types of conditions.
High Heat Resistance:
Glassfiber filter cloth has excellent heat resistance at relatively low cost. Glassfiber cloth retains approximately 50% of room temperature tensile strength at 700°F (371°C); approximately 25% at 900°F (482°C); with a softening point of 1555°F (846°C) and a melting point of 2075° F (1121 °C).
Glassfiber Filter cloth is composed of inorganic materials, and are noncombustible, a natural choice where flammability is of concern.
Good Thermal Conductivity:
The rapid heat dissipation of Glassfiber cloth is particularly important in electrical insulation applications.
Good Chemical Resistance:
Like glass itself, Glassfiber cloth is highly resistant to attack by most chemicals.
Outstanding Electrical Properties:
Glassfiber fabric withstands high temperature and has low moisture regain. Along with its high dielectric strength and low dielectric constant, glass is of major importance and usefulness in the electronics.
