Temp Mat is non-corrosive, non-combustible, non-alkaline and chemically stable fiberglass product. It offers excellent heat resistance, flexibility and low thermal conductivity making Tempmat an effective low-cost replacement for asbestos mats, millboard refractory paper and other similar products. GLT Products stocks Temp Mat and is sold under our GLT Mat brand name.
Tempmat is manufactured in web form and mechanically needled together to form thicknesses of ¼˝, ½˝ and 1˝. There are no binders in Temp Mat. Instead, long textile fibers have been accurately chopped to provide maximum density, high insulation and strong physical properties in temperatures up to 1200°F. It also offers excellent sound absorption properties and resistance to vibration without powdering.
The product can be used to relieve stress at welding points and on valve flange covers. In nuclear power plants, these blankets reduce labor costs during removal for inspection and service, and cut reinsulation costs associated with poor fitting rigid block.
