SilcoSoft - 2000F

SilcoSoft™ – Silica-like Fiber Mat


SilcoSoft™ is one of the highest temperature thermal insulators on the market today. Not only does it withstand 2000-degree F temperatures, it is also extremely soft and pliable, easily conforming to irregular shapes. SilcoSoft™ is made from BELCOTEX® fibers by belChem Fibers of Germany. Its 9-micron fiber diameter is non-respirable, making handling safe and easy. SilcoSoft™ is a breath of fresh air for installers that appreciate the fact that it is non-dusting and does not irritate the skin or throat and its silky-soft touch is icing on the cake.
