3M™ Nextel™ Yarn 312, made from 312 Grade continuous filament ceramic rovings in 600, 900, 1800 and 3600 denier weights, and numerous roving counts, is designed to withstand continuous use temperatures up to 2200oF (1204oC). Nextel 312 Yarns are ideal for high temperature industrial and aerospace applications. Several sizings available.

3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Fibers represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology. These yarns are the basis for a variety of ceramic textiles including fabrics, tapes, sleevings and sewing threads. Because the fibers are flexible, continuous and strong, textiles can be produced without the aid of other fibers or wire inserts. These textiles are typically used in industrial, aerospace, and electrical applications .
