Industry History (We're Old!)
For years, the industry standard for fabrics in high-temperature resistant fabrics market was asbestos. Asbestos possessed many unique characteristics, most notably its high-temperature and abrasion resistant properties. However, in spite of its broad usage, there were temperature and performance limitations.
In the 1970's, with government legislation and pressure from the insurance industry, asbestos usage began to wane. New textile products such as fiber, glass, silica, ceramic, para-aramids, and carbon blends were developed and began to
replace asbestos. In 1981, Thermotex Industries, Inc., entered the market with the objective of weaving fiber glass in, wide and narrow, heavy weight ASBESTOS-FREE fabrics to meet specific customer needs. The business grew in the U.S. and overseas.
