3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-14 is woven from Nextel 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn that is designed to maintain strength and flexibility under a variety of extremely high temperature conditions. Nextel fabric AF-14 outperforms the useful limits of many other high temperature textiles for improved performance in demanding applications.
3M™ Nextel™ Fabric AF-14, is woven from Nextel 312 high temperature continuous ceramic oxide yarn and is designed to withstand continuous high temperatures and can act as a flame barrier. Due to the unique properties of Nextel 312 fiber, these products outperform the useful limits of many other high temperature textiles. Our Nextel fabric AF-14 is often used as a component in flame barriers, high temperature seals. It may also be used as a reinforcement for ceramic matrix composites (CMC) and polymer matrix composites (PMC). Applications: Composite fire barriers Flexible seals and gaskets Flexible thermal barriers Sewn refractory parts and shapes Structural reinforcement Industrial thermal metal treatment Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) reinforcement Micrometeorite debris shield
