One of the most widely used applications for nanofibers is in insulating materials. Along with having a high resistance to fire, it is also a very good thermal insulator.
Nanofiber material can be found across the following applications:
- Heat-resistant flooring and coating materials
These are used under oven hoods, in kilns, incinerators, engines and turbines to shield them from high heat environments. This makes these materials ideal for preventing fires or reducing the intensity of fires when they occur.
- Heat-resistant insulation materials
These are used to insulate various kinds of buildings, including the pyrotechnic industry. This is due to the fact that different kinds of insulation can be made in a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses, which makes it an excellent material for insulating pipes and other components that are exposed to heat and flames.
- Heat-resistant clothing such as fire-resistant jackets, boots, & gloves
These are especially useful in situations where it is necessary to work with high temperatures. Nanofiber clothing provides protection against flames and extreme heat while also providing excellent insulation. The material is also very lightweight which makes it very comfortable to wear.
