TECSIL braided glass fiber ropes are processed into 96% silica (SiO2), boosting thermal performance of the textile ropes to 1800°F. TECSIL silica braided ropes are available in several diameters to serve as compressible seals and fillers in extremely high temperature applications without shrinkage or embrittlement. Where guaranteed performance is required at temperatures over 1000°F, TECSIL rope gaskets provide protection and assurance against thermal deterioration and seal failures.


TECSIL rope gaskets are used in high temperature compressible sealing and packing applications where temperatures exceed 1000°F and protection against thermal spikes over 1800°F is required. Coke oven door seals, crucible lid gaskets, expansion seals for molten metal casting molds are included among the many industrial applications for TECSIL braided rope.
