Special features of high-temperature cables are a good mechanical strength and a high ageing resistance when used in a dry environment besides the high temperature resistance. Glass silk proves its worth for expanding the application areas, also combined with other thermal or mechanical resistant materials such as e.g. PTFE, FEP, silicone, polyamide or mica. This combination also enables the use in a humid environment at a very high tensile strength.
Typical fields of application are electrical heaters, extrusion and dry systems, industrial furnaces, steel technology and metallurgy as well as glass production.
Glass silk wires can also be delivered in other profiles, with other conduction materials and for higher rated voltages on demand.
