Heat resistant material for hollow glass manipulation
Bekaert offers a wide range of heat resistant felts, knitted structures and ropes for the production of hollow glass. Our extended product portfolio is based on high quality stainless steel fibers combined or not with other materials such as PBO, para-aramid and glass fibers.

Handle with care

Bekaert heat resistant textiles effectively reduce vibration and withstand temperatures up to 700 °C. These features not only increase the lifetime of your glass products significantly, it also makes them easier to process with a reduced risk of scratching and pitting. This results in the reduction of potential damage during the handling of your delicate glass products, and thus the reduction of scrap.
