Warp knitted fabrics used as a covering material of quench rings in automotive glass. They combine heat resistance, mechanical durability and very high air permeability with the softness of a textile fabric. All fabrics are delivered on rolls of 25 m or 50 m wrapped on a cardboard core.
The available fabrics are:
BEKAERT Quench KNR2
has a high temperature resistance and is a widely used quenching product in the glass bending industry for medium complexity lites.
BEKAERT Quench KNR16
has also a high temperature resistance and is used on the quench ring for medium and high complexity lites and long runsizes.
BEKAERT Goldquench KNR31
is a 100% PBO fabric and therefore has a lower temperature resistance as the 100% stainless steel. Due to its isolating properties and softness it is mainly used for the production of thin and/or high complexity lites
BEKAERT Megaquench KNR41
combines the properties of stainless steel and PBO due to the twisting of both materials. It is less slippery compared to Goldquench and Novaquench.
BEKAERT Novaquench KNR51
combines the properties of stainless steel and PBO due to the intimate mixing of both fibers. BEKAERT Novaquench KNR51 is used for high run sizes and medium to complexity lites.
BEKAERT Novaquench KNR52
combines the properties of stainless steel and PBO due to the intimate mixing of both fibers. The size of square opening is bigger than BEKAERT Novaquench KNR51. BEKAERT Novaquench KNR52 is used for high run sizes and medium to complexity lites.
