  • 1.6mm Thick Premium Fibreglass Cloth coated on one side with Aluminium Foil.
  • The foil naturally reflects heat and provides a solid barrier for sealing.
  • Excellent Heat Resistance. Withstands 260°C on the Aluminised Side (Cloth Handles 540°C).
  • Flexible & Strong. Made in the USA.
  • Excellent UV & Sunlight Resistance, Long Lasting and Resistant to Most Chemicals.

Our 1.6mm thick (0.065”) Aluminium Coated Fibreglass Cloth is an industrial grade heat insulation material. This flexible and easy to handle fabric is typically used for applications that require a solid heat resistant barrier to reflect heat and/or prevent fluid transfer.

This thermal fabric is manufactured in the USA to meet high standards. It is coated on one side with 1 Mil (0.0254mm) thick Aluminium Foil and is flexible, easy to work with and very durable.

High Heat Resistance.

This high temperature woven cloth can withstand continuous exposure to temperatures up to 260°C. This is the lowest of its temperature ratings as it is at this point that the adhesive used to affix the thin aluminium foil will begin to degrade.

At temperatures above 260°C (up to 540°C), the foil may begin to delaminate from the fibreglass fabric though both the glass and aluminium will remain intact. At temperatures above 540°C, the fibreglass fabric will no longer provide insulating performance.

Excellent Tensile Strength & Quality of Construction.

At Swift, we are proud to offer quality insulation fabrics made by some of the world’s leading manufacturers. This cloth is no exception.

Our Aluminium Coated Fibreglass Cloths are all manufactured by Amatex in the USA. With over 100 years in the insulation fabric manufacturing business, they continue to produce high quality, high temperature textiles that are known for their consistent performance, high quality and durability.
