In response to the demand for a more aesthetically pleasing fabric, Mid-Mountain has developed ARMATEX® SilverStar, a lightweight silicone coated fabric with a reflective silver color that targets improved insulation performance. Available in finished weights of 10 oz/sy and 13 oz/sy, ARMATEX® SilverStar is a lighter weight alternative to the the traditional 17 oz/sy coated fabric used in the fabrication of removable/reusable insulation blankets and pads. And though the weight is lighter, SilverStar has increased thermal insulation properties which offer the potential for greater energy savings.
Manufactured from a fiberglass base fabric with unique patterns and a proprietary silicone coating, ARMATEX® SilverStar has an appearance like no other coated fabric on the market. If you have an application where aesthetics are important, and both high temperature resistance and abrasion resistance are required, ARMATEX® SilverStar is the perfect solution.
Ease of use in fabrication
Flexes without cracking
Greater flexibility for insulation jacketing applications
Given it’s unique appearance and durability, ARMATEX® SilverStar can be used in a wide variety of applications in multiple industries such as aerospace, automotive, metallurgy, marine, power generation, and large-scale equipment and machinery manufacturing. ARMATEX® SilverStar can be used for safety barriers, safety curtains, expansion joints, protective shields, welding blankets and curtains, and any application that requires a high-temperature barrier.
