Nextel ceramic textiles for thermocouple insulation
Turn up the heat.

Multi-use, heat resistant textiles insulate and protect electrical components from extreme temperatures.

3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers and Textiles for High Temperature Electrical Insulation

  • 3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers and Textiles are specially designed to function in extreme environments. With a combination of low thermal conductivity and high electrical resistance, these materials are ideal for use where electrical wiring, cable trays or conduits are exposed to high temperatures.

    Resilient and flexible even at temperatures up to 1300ºC, Nextel ceramic fibers and textiles are designed to withstand demanding environments ranging from heaters and fuel cells to electrical systems in civilian and military aircraft. Nextel ceramic fibers and textiles are compatible with many alloys, without acids or chlorides that could leach out and cause etching of metal. Engineered to survive today’s most challenging high temperature conditions, Nextel products for electrical insulation help ensure reliable electrical transmission when the heat is on.
