Glassfiber Filter Bags
Glassfiber filter cloth is one of the strongest textile fibers,
having greater specific tensile strength than steel wire of the
same diameter, at a lower weight.
Glassfiber Filter cloth has low elongation under load, generally 3%
or less. Glass fibers produce fabrics with excellent dimensional
stability under various types of conditions.
High Heat Resistance:
Glassfiber filter cloth has excellent heat resistance at relatively
low cost. Glassfiber cloth retains approximately 50% of room
temperature tensile strength at 700°F (371°C); approximately 25% at
900°F (482°C); with a softening point of 1555°F (846°C) and a
melting point of 2075° F (1121 °C).
Glassfiber Filter cloth is composed of inorganic materials, and are
noncombustible, a natural choice where flammability is of concern.
Good Thermal Conductivity:
The rapid heat dissipation of Glassfiber cloth is particularly
important in electrical insulation applications.
Good Chemical Resistance:
Like glass itself, Glassfiber cloth is highly resistant to attack
by most chemicals.
Outstanding Electrical Properties:
Glassfiber fabric withstands high temperature and has low moisture
regain. Along with its high dielectric strength and low dielectric
constant, glass is of major importance and usefulness in the
Being inert, Glassfiber cloth is unaffected by sunlight, fungus or
Glassfiber Filter cloth is lower in cost than many other fabrics
for similar applications.
