Alternative to asbestos

Cape reckons a decade of searching for a product which mirrors the mechanical properties of asbestos is over. Duraflex is a high strength, flexible, non-brittle asbestos-free engineering board that the company says outperforms asbestos itself.

Made up of a Calcium Silicate matrix, Duraflex offers a true resilience to flexural loading, demonstrating an outstanding toughness not seen in traditional asbestos replacement materials. The versatile engineering board possesses both high temperature and electrical insulation properties.

Duraflex is non-wetting to molten metals, and has excellent outgassing characteristics when used under vacuum conditions.
