Caramelised or ‘heat-treated’ fabrics are made by passing a Fibreglass loomstate fabric through a high temperature oven. This process burns any oils and imperfections that the fabric attracts during the weaving phase. Heat treating fibreglass fabrics also ensures the fabric does not emit smoke when used in high temperature applications.
