Fibramat1Fibramat is a durable, non-hazardous, non-woven synthetic fiber product manufactured as an alternative to fiberglass. Its unique manufacturing process allows it to be engineered to meet a wide variety of requirements. It is an excellent thermal and acoustical insulator, and it is also very effective as polyiso foam gasketing.

Fibramat™ is a UL Recognized Component to 94-HF1 and passes MVSS 302 test for flammability. It is 100% recyclable, hypoallergenic, mold and mildew resistant and has no noticeable odor. In addition, it is non-absorbent and will not deteriorate or lose dimensional stability when exposed to moisture. It can be laminated with films, scrims, foils, fabrics and pressure sensitive adhesives.

Components made from Fibramat are ideal for OEM manufacturing and assembly facilities. It is environmentally friendly and does not require the use of respirators, protective clothing or other safety precautions associated with the exposure to fiberglass.

Several standard configurations are available or RubberMill can develop a custom product or composite to meet your specific requirement. Contact us today to discuss your requirements. Fibramat will be an excellent addition to your list of Green, Worker Friendly initiatives.
