Silicone coated fiberglass fabric can be divided into single-sided silicone fabric and double-sided silicone fabric. One side silicone coated fabric is fiberglass base fabric which is one side impregnated with specially bonded silicone rubber, while a double-sided silicone coated fabric is fiberglass cloth with two sides silicone rubber. When the surface of the silicone cloth is coated with silicone rubber, it will enter the oven to dry and vulcanize. The purpose of drying is to remove the solvent and make the cloth dry. The vulcanization enables the silicone rubber to fully express the performance of the silicone rubber in the coating. The fiberglass cloth without any coating itself has poor abrasion resistance, and it will cause irritation to the human skin during using it, the cloth edges are scattered, and the workability is poor. Therefore, the silicone rubber compound is bonded to the cloth through the coating technology, which can eliminate or reduce the shortcomings of uncoated fiberglass fabric. Silicone rubber has many characteristics, such as heat resistance, abrasion resistance, water resistance, weather resistance, softness and toughness, elasticity, good insulation performance, chemical resistance, good sealing, and high temperature resistance can reach 280 degrees. The price of double-sided silicone cloth is generally more expensive than that of single-sided silicone cloth, because the amount of silicone rubber applied is different. The greater the amount of silicone rubber, the higher the cost, so the price of silicone coated fabric will be more expensive. Suntex double sides silicone coated glass cloth has a variety of specifications, the common thicknesses are 0.3mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.6mm, 0.8mm, 0.9mm, 1.0mm, 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 1.7mm, 2.0 mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, etc. The common colors are silver gray, gray, red, black, green, yellow, white, blue, orange. The width is generally in the range of 1m to 2m. For other sizes, please contact the Suntex manufacturer, your needs can be customized. Silicone coated fabric fireproof cloth can be divided into fireproof grades. For example, the silicone fiberglass fabric of our Suntex factory has reached the A grade fireproof standard in China.
There are many uses of both side silicone coated fiber glass cloth, such as removable and reusable insulation covers and pads, fabric expansion joint, welding curtains and blankets, smoke curtain, fire curtain, heat shields, fireproof file bags, fabric air distribution ducts, flexible duct connector, etc. The two sides silicone coated fabrics is coated with silicone on both sides, so its sealing, waterproof and abrasion resistance will be better than the one side coating silicone fabric. Since the uncoated fiberglass cloth itself can cause irritation to human skin, and the two sides silicone coated fiberglass cloth coated with silicone will reduce or eliminate the irritation to human skin, it is necessary to choose a suitable silicone coated fiberglass according to the specific application and site conditions. Good quality double-sided silicone coated fiberglass, the amount of silicone rubber on the surface is very uniform, there will be few or no surface defects, good abrasion resistance, etc. Of course, the price is more expensive than ordinary ones. One side coating silicone fabric is generally used for removable insulation blankets and jackets, heat insulation of automobile exhaust pipes, outer layers of flexible fabric compensators, and non-metallic expansion joints. Of course, in order to save costs, some people use single-sided silicone coated fiberglass to make welding blankets and fireproof blankets, but this may cause irritation to the user's skin. Therefore, we must choose the appropriate double sides silicone coated fiberglass fabric actual situation.
