For the Olympus heat resistant fabric high quality silica fibres are used, which are environmentally non-hazardous. Olympus is treated with a mineral based finish to improve its abrasive resistance and the resistance to fraying. Olympus is free of asbestos!
The maximum application temperature is 1000 °C, shortly up to 1300°C.
Olympus is recommended for horizontal use, for example as a welding and grinding curtain in situations in which very high temperatures are reached. Olympus silicate-fabrics have excellent characteristics in relation to handling and resistance to high temperature loads. Therefore this fabric is suitable for use as welding blanket even under extreme conditions.
