This felt is about 3/16" (5mm) thick. It is 60" wide and sold by the foot (30 cm).
This is a double sided material with Pre-Ox on both sides, with a reinforcing fiberglass mesh through the center. This black felt is a high temperature fabric made from Pre-Oxidized Acrylic Fiber. It has a fiberglass backing for strength.
This fabric is typically used as a heavy duty welding blanket because of its high temperature resistance. Because of this, it works well as a heavy duty fire blanket for smothering difficult to extinguish tools.
This fabric is inherently flame retardant, meaning that there is no fire resistant treatment to wash out.
Because this is a very absorbent material, it makes a very good wick. It can be used for eating torches, absorbent layers under Kevlar, or any application that does not need the abrasive resistance of Kevlar. This material is designed to protect welders from hot molten steel. This material has a very low heat conductivity and is very good for protection from heat, however long term exposure to high temperature will break it down. Comparable products are sold under the names Panther Felt and Stealth felt.
