MICROTEX is the first choice in lightweight, acoustic absorption material for high temperature automotive exhaust systems. Exhaust gas temperatures and pressures cause major durability problems for conventional acoustic absorption materials. Those demands are getting tougher as gas temperatures and pressures are boosted to improve catalytic conversion performance.
Fibretech's Steel Casting Technology creates products with outstanding oxidation resistance, a high active surface area and unmatched performance at extreme temperatures.
- Specialist alloys
- Lifetime durability
- Design flexibility
- Sound quality
MICROTEX HT /434/316
MICROTEX Metalx 900°C - 1,000°C
MICROTEX HT 700°C - 900°C
A full range of alloys for different temperatures is available.
MICROTEX METALX and MICROTEX HT are high alloy steels, with higher temperature oxidisation resistance than established alternatives like 434. As with all Fibretech products, MICROTEX METALX and MICROTEX HT remain fully annealed.
Because of their fine unique crystalline structure, their performance remains constant and predictable at high temperature with no drop off in load carrying capacity, or resistance to gas pressure. Fibretech also offer MICROTEX STANDARD in 434 and 316 alloys which meet the requirements of existing specifications.
