3M™ Nextel™ roving is comprised of 3M™ Nextel™ 312 Grade continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber that is designed to maintain strength and flexibility under a variety of very high temperature conditions. The 3M Nextel roving portfolio outperforms the useful limits of many other high temperature rovings for high temperature strength and insulation in industrial, aerospace and other applications.
3M™ Nextel™ Roving 312 is comprised of 312 continuous filament ceramic oxide fiber. The roving styles are 600, 900, 1200, 1800, 3600 denier. This material is designed to maintain strength and flexibility while withstanding continuous high temperatures. Nextel roving 312 is ideal for high temperature industrial and aerospace applications. This roving can be used as an input material to make different textiles to meet user needs. 3M Nextel Ceramic Fibers represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. The roving can be used to make a variety ceramic textiles including fabrics, tapes, sleevings and sewing threads. Because the fibers are flexible, continuous and strong, textiles can be produced without the aid of other fibers or wire inserts. Nextel rovings from 3M are designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrical performance requirements. They are heat, flame and oxidation resistant; and chemically resistant, lightweight, electrically insulating and flexible. Applications: Industrial high temperature insulation components Metal high temperature processing components Very high temperature electrical braided insulations Thermocouple insulation Thermal shielding for aerospace and industrial
