Construction: As their name implies, PowerGuard Fabric Bellows are based on a special fabric coated to suit the intended use. They exhibit excellent dimensional stability and can be further stabilized by means of wire rings or coil springs. A zip fastener can be added to facilitate retrofitting.


  • For very strong mechanical stress
  • For high temperatures (up to ~800°C)
  • In alkaline-solution or acid environments
  • Where ozone and UV resistance are of the essence
  • In aggressive or rough environments

PowerGuard Materials and their properties:

CR fabric

The time-tried material for outdoor use (ozone and weather resistant). This material can be made flame-retardant.

CR fabric with PTFE coating

The ideal material when resistance to acid, alkaline-solution, laquer, solvents, ozone, weather and abrasion is needed. This material is electrically conductive.

Kevlar® or Aluminum Carbon Fabric

Radiant heat resistant up to 900°C, for permanent heat up to 200°C. These materials can be PTFE coated for better resistance to abrasion and easier cleaning.

Fibreglass fabric

Excellent material when ozone, weather, oil, grease, solvents and temperature resistance (up to 700°C) are required and for radiant heat up to 800°C.

Nomex® fabric coated with silicone

This is used whenever flame-retarding is needed. Certified according to French fire control standard, class F1/M1.


Oil, grease and temperature resistant. Not recommended for use in moist environments.
