THERMAFAB FLEXIBLE DUCT CONNECTOR
- Wide temperature range (-60º to 260ºC)
- Very low smoke emission
- Good chemical resistance
- Excellent resistance to weathering
- Waterproof and airtight
- Unaffected by mildew
THERMAFAB™ is a specially developed fiberglass fabric, coated on both sides with silicone rubber. It incorporates a very broad temperature range with outstanding resistance to weathering, aging, the effects of sunlight, and a wide variety of chemicals.
THERMAFAB™ does not support combustion and produces very little smoke on exposure to flame and extreme heat. It is supplied in 30m (100 ft) coils of fabric joined on both sides to galvanized steel, or as a fabric only for special applications.
While it may be used almost anywhere a flexible duct connector is needed, THERMAFAB™ is particularly suited to those applications exposed to higher temperatures, or where the risk of fire is concerned. THERMAFAB’s extremely low smoke emission alleviates the possibility of noxious fumes from the connector being added to the duct air stream in the event of a fire.
