Needlemats for thermal insulation


Needlemats (nonwoven materials) are flat textiles made from single fibres, held together by their own adhesion, strenghtened by a mechanical process


width: 50 - 3000 mm thickness: 3 - 75 mm Weight approx. 300 - 17000 g/m² Special versions: rolls, cut parts, waterjet cut 3-D

Product versions:

isoGLAS ®, isoTHERM ® 1000, isoTHERM ® S, isoCOMPOSITE ® On request isoTECH, novaTEX ® GOLD


isoCOMPOSITE ®Photo_tlPhoto_br

isoCOMPOSITE ® Base material isoCOMPOSITE ® needlemat is a compound from isoTHERM ® 1000 and isoGLAS ® needlemat. This material is a highly efficient and economic thermal insulation material. Application limit 850°C

isoGLAS ®Photo_tlPhoto_br
isoGLAS ®

isoGLAS ® Base material textured E-glass Fibre diameter Made in a mechanical drawing process, defined diameter 6 - 13 µm no fibres passing the lung! Application limit 450°C Short peaks up to 550°C Characteristics of isoGLAS ® rot proof dimensionally stable chemical resistance pH 3-9 no toxic components friendly to the skin no health risks high strength good electrical insulation good thermal insulation incombustible Products available yarns, packings, woven fabrics, cords, sleevings, fire blankets, needlemats, tapes, knitted ropes

novaTEX ® GOLDPhoto_tlPhoto_br
novaTEX ® GOLD

Technical High Performance Fibre Temperature resistance 450°C (short time for typical applications in the glass industry) LOI (unlimited oxygen index) 68 Fibre diameter 10 µm Abrasion test fabric at 10.000 revs no holes Characteristic colour gold brown Fields of application in areas where an excellent resistance to wear is required together with a very good temperature resistance (e.g. glass industry, conveyor belts). novaTEX ® GOLD is a problem solving, tailor-made product for specialised applications (e.g. glass industry). Products available cords, sleevings (braided or woven), woven fabrics, packings, woven tapes, needlemats, conveyor belts

isoTHERM ® 1000Photo_tlPhoto_br
isoTHERM ® 1000

Base material E-glass filament Fibre diameter 6 µm no fibres passing to the lungs acc. to TRGS Application limit 850°C Short peaks up to 1000°C Chemical process Those components decreasing the melting point are dissolved out of the E-glass fibres by a controlled acid treatment, in return the temperature resistance has been drastically increased. Characteristic colour blue Please note: When heated up, the material will lose its colour, this however does not influence the temperature resistanceof the material! Approval A1 acc. to DIN 4102 for fabrics Properties of isoTHERM ® 1000 non hazardous to health, rot proof, dimensionally stable, chemical resistance pH 3 – 9, high strength, no toxic components, friendly to the skin, good electrical properties, good thermal insulation, incombustible Products available Yarns, packings, woven fabrics, safety blankets, sleevings, woven tapes, cords, knitted ropes


isoTECH Needlemat This new needlemat range is based on high performance technical fibres, which include meta-aramid, para-aramid, polyester, viscose FR, polyimide, flax, polypropylene, carbon – both, in blends and 100 % pure. This is dependant on the customer’s application. isoTECH needlemat is developed in close cooperation with our customers to provide technical tailor-made solutions. Thickness and material density depend largely on the type of fibres used.


Base material silica glass Fibre diameter 6 - 9 µm Application limit 1050°C short peaks up to 1100°C Shrinkage isoTHERM ® S --> < 8 % isoTHERM ® ST --> < 3 % (heat treated) Characteristic colour white Products available Cords, sleevings, woven fabrics, needlemats, woven tapes, packings
