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.
