Advanced Aerospace Technology

Our advanced high-performance products are currently being used in many applications for the aerospace industry, including all military aircraft, commercial aircraft, business jets, and space exploration. Our products that meet FAR 25.853 or FAR 25.856 include:

Burnthrough Insulation
Over-the-frame Blankets
Thermal Acoustic Insulation
Carpet Underlayments
High-temperature Ducting Insulation

Fire-blocking Layers (FBLs) for Seating
Cabin-divider Linings
Moisture-absorbing Felts
Carbonized Rayon
Thermal Ablatives

Our extensive knowledge and experience of high-performance materials and fiber blending gives us the ability to customize and design products that meet the most demanding and difficult requirements while dealing with aerospace regulations.

Some of our aerospace technologies are also used in other applications such as equipment enclosures, thermal curtains for welding, high-temperature gaskets, and many other industrial applications.

Fuselage Protection: In addition to thermal- and acoustic-insulating functions, thermal acoustic materials must protect against fire and other incidents. The prevalence of insulation makes it a target for in-flight fire ignition, and flammable insulation can act as a path for flame propagation and growth. Thermal Acoustic: Thermal acoustic insulation layers the aircraft’s entire fuselage, and it consists of a specialized high-performance fiber encapsulated in an aircraft-rated plastic covering, holding the insulation material together while acting as a moisture barrier. Moisture Control: These insulating materials ensure that external temperature changes do not negatively affect the passengers’ comfort and that excessive noise generated by the aircraft does not disrupt communication in the passenger cabin and on the flight deck. Cabin-Divider Linings: Our fire blocking layers are custom- made and can be used on a variety of seating styles and arrangements for crew, first class, business, class, and economy. Seat Fire Blocking: Turnkey system with everything needed for rapid deployment in a single storage container. Integrates on the exterior of Rigid Wall containers and shelters. Air Cargo Containers: Reduce weight and improves ballistic performance while enhancing flexibility and comfort with Core Matrix TechnologyTM. Bomb Blankets: Our advanced high-performance products are currently being used in many applications for the aerospace industry, including all military aircraft, commercial aircraft, business jets, and space exploration. Carpet Underlays: TexTech manufactures urethane laminated nylon fabrics that are used in single and dual cell life vests. The fabric conforms to the requirements necessary for the FAA TSO C13 specification as well as USCG approved vests. Safety Vest: Tex Tech utilizes urethane fabric-based FAA escape slides.

Seat Fire Blocking Expertise

With 30 years of industry experience, we do more than pass the strictest FAA, DOT fire and burnthrough test requirements, we engineer our fire-blocking textiles for durability, product integrity, and manufacturability. This gives our customers cost-effective solutions that resist puncture or abrasion and reduce human health effects by reliably controlling the spread of fire and fire-borne toxins. Tex Tech Industries’ manufactures a wide range of Aerospace, Rail and Mass Transit Fire Blockers can be as light as 3.1 oz./sq. yd. to 10.9 oz./sq. yd. Depending on the industry, we currently have FBLs that meet the following regulations and standards:

  • FAR25.853
  • ASTM D 2261
  • ASTM D 3884
  • ASTM E 162
  • FTMS191A
  • CAL 133
  • OSU 66

In addition to being the world’s largest supplier of Fire-Blocking Layers (FBLs) for aircraft seating, we also supply FBLs for Amtrak seating and other railway lines, as well as school and commercial buses. And we offer a range of fiber, weight, and thickness alternatives for use in industrial fire blankets, personal fire protection, and mattress fire blocking.
