Technical Characteristics of Avoca Gauntlets

  • The nonwoven fabric structure is reinforced to make it stiffer also giving it higher elasticity.
  • Fast and easy filling with powder or paste through wet and dry filling.
  • Low electrical resistance. Good resistance to electrochemical oxidation.
  • Excellent resistance to surface abrasion due to use of high quality raw materials.
  • Higher porosity of yarn density designed to achieve very even and minute holes to preserve the active mass and prevent it shedding.
  • The gauntlet offers glued edge protection against plate lateral short circuits by partially coating the end tubes. This protection is an efficient and more economical alternative to the sleeve technique.
  • Tubes can not only be made as round, but oval, elliptical, rectangular and square.
