SilcoSoft - 2000F

SILCOS~2

SilcoSoft – Silica-like fiber mat

SilcoSoft is one of the highest temperature thermal insulator 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 who 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.
