Safety Data Sheets

Accidents don’t have to happen.

At AMI, it is our mission to help industry control extreme temperatures with safe, effective textile products. Time after time, our customers choose AMI products to prevent errant sparks from igniting fires…provide energy saving protection around pipes, valves and instrumentation lines…seal oven, furnace and boiler doors…and outfit personnel with superior safety clothing.

Why AMI? Because safety and savings are our top priorities. We offer a comprehensive selection of heat resistant textiles, protecting against temperatures from 225°F to 3000°F (107°C to 1650°C)…and against extreme cold, too.

All our fabrics are available in a variety of high performance fibers and composites including aramid, fiberglass and essentially pure amorphous silica. They are light, flexible and versatile, making them easy to use. And they can be configured to meet your needs…without burning your budget.
