The new ceraspace technology from Schoeller Textil AG opens up a new dimension in abrasion proofing and heat resistance. The ceraspace technology displays three times higher abrasion resistance than those of leather and is in addition extremely resistant to contact heat.

The new ceraspace technology from Schoeller owes its outstanding protective properties to a unique composition of special ceramic particles anchored in a polymer matrix. The special ceramic particles are nearly as hard as diamonds and are firmly attached as a 3-dimensional coating to the textile.

A textile with ceraspace proves to perform significantly higher than high quality leather in terms of abrasion (it wears out significantly slower in the the Schopper Abrasion tester –tested with abrasive paper P280 grid).

A second test, the Fall Simulator Test simulates a fall from a motorcycle and damages to the textile after the fall are evaluated. With ceraspace technology, the tested sample supported several crashes at 120 km/h.

Thanks to the duroplastic properties of the polymer, no melting is possible and the heat-up rate remains low, minimizing the possibility of exposure to harmful heat and abrasion for the wearer.

Maximum protection at very high temperatures When standard textiles are exposed to high temperatures, they become damaged. The ceraspace technology, when added to textiles offers terrific protection. The 3-dimensional coating is highly resistant to elevated temperatures and works as a protective space barrier between the textile and a heat source.

ceraspace is used in all areas in which textiles with maximum protective properties are required, such as, motorcycle, workwear and military apparel; footwear or protective trim for ski and outdoor clothing.

The carrier materials, onto which the ceraspace technology is added are available in full width and lengths and are variable depending on the requirements of functionality and end application.

This means, a variety of textile properties or further protective functions are available, such as cut resistance or moisture management. In addition, the ceraspace technology offers high washing and dry cleaning permanence.
