   Blanket / Batt       Blankets or batts (batting) are made of thick layers of woven and/or nonwoven fabric sheets. 
   Fabric / Cloth       Industrial fabrics are produced by weaving, knitting, braiding, or extrusion.

Material Type
   Material Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Alumina       Alumina (aluminum oxide) is a white, ceramic material with high hardness. Fully-dense alumina can be translucent. Alumina is used widely because of its versatility and relatively low cost. Alumina's main drawback is its relatively poor thermal shock resistance because of its higher coefficients of thermal expansion and lower thermal conductivity when compared to other, pure ceramic materials such as silicon carbide (SiC). 
   Boron       Boron fibers are often available in monofilament form. They are used to provide structural reinforcement in composites. 
   Carbon / Graphite       Carbon is a non-metallic element with an extremely high sublimation temperature and a wide variety of crystalline structure forms. Carbon is available as amorphous/vitreous carbon, pyrolytic graphite, hexagonal graphite, diamond or diamond-like carbon. To prevent oxidation at elevated temperatures, carbon without a protective coating is used in reducing or vacuum atmospheres. 
   Quartz / Fused Silica       Fused silica is a compound of silicon and oxygen. Quartz and high-purity amorphous-fused silica afford very low expansion, remarkable thermal shock resistance, low thermal conductivity, excellent electrical insulation up to 1000° C, and excellent resistance to corrosion from molten metal. 
   Silicon Carbide       Silicon carbide (SiC) is a ceramic material with high hardness. It is usually harder than alumina and, depending on the addition of impurities, is green or black in color. Silicon carbide is used to form a protective layer that prevents further oxidation at very high temperatures in non-reducing atmospheres. Silicon carbide has a relatively high thermal shock resistance compared to other ceramic materials. This is due to its low coefficient of thermal expansion and high thermal conductivity.   
   Zirconia       Zirconia (zirconium oxide) is an extremely refractory compound. It often contains additions of calcia, magnesia or yttria for the formation and stabilization of a cubic structure that minimizes cracking and mechanical weakening during heating and cooling. Zirconia is used in wear applications that require improved fracture-toughness and greater stiffness than alumina can provide. Zirconia ceramics possess excellent chemical inertness and corrosion resistance at temperatures well above the melting point of alumina. Because it is more expensive zirconia is used mainly in applications that are not suitable for alumina. Zirconia has low thermal conductivity and is an electrical conductor above 800° C. 
   Specialty (Hafnia, Yttria, Ceria, REO, etc.)       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary materials such as yttria (Y2O3), hafnia (HfO2,), ceria (CeO2) and other rare earth oxide (REO) ceramics. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Mineral Wool Addition?       Mineral wool includes slag wool (slag from a metallurgical furnace), rock wool (mineral-derived), or glass wool (sand- or glass-derived), depending upon the raw material from which it is produced. Mineral wool is manufactured by blowing air or steam, or spinning filaments from a molten mass of raw material through a molten blast furnace slag (slag wool), molten rock (rock wool), or molten sand or glass (glass wool). The resultant fibers are then collected as a tangled mat of fibrous product. Mineral wool is often derived from a calcium silicate mineral. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Metallic Fiber Additions?       Metal fibers have a shiny surface, high density, ductility, high melting point, high hardness, and high thermal and electrical conductivity. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Dimensions
   Fiber Denier       Denier is a unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers. It is defined as the mass in grams (g) per 9000 meters (m). Filament denier is defined as the mass per 9000 m of a single filament of fiber. Total denier is also defined as the mass per 9000 m, but applies to filament agglomerations such as yarn.
