Overbraided basalt rope type ETS–O

Products > Ropes, sleeves and high - temperature tapes > Overbraided basalt rope type ETS–O

Premium basalt yarn applied in this rope is characterized by excellent thermal and mechanical resistance. The rope of ETS-O type is built from core of ceramic mat overbraided with textured basalt yarn. Thanks to the application of a proper strand and texture, we obtained elastic packing with much air captured between the fibres. This phenomenon gives, as a result, perfect insulating power.

Application

Basalt packing is a resting sealing, ideal to be used in furnaces, flaps, hatches, holes cleanout openings and expansion gaps. Applied e.g. in power plants (coal mills), in metallurgy (coke batteries), founding (forms sealing), ceramic industry (ceramic carts and furnaces) and municipal economy (coal furnaces).
