Pad & Lagging

pad and lagging fabrics 1A crucial component of many industrial processing facilities, BGF’s pad and lagging fabrics comprise the outer carrier of thermal pads and covers installed in mechanical operation areas. These fabrics are manufactured from 100% fiberglass yarns, so they’re 100% asbestos-free. They are resistant to high temperatures and are easy to handle, cut, and sew. Our proprietary finishes offer superior resistance to heat and water and satisfy our customers’ specific performance requirements.
