  • Publication number: 20120149268
    Abstract: The treatment of textile articles, such as sleeves made of mineral fibers of the type that are used with automotive exhaust system components, by impregnating the textile articles with treatment compositions of various formulations including fluoropolymers and/or mixtures of fluoropolymers with co-resins, followed by heat treatment to cure the compositions, thereby providing protection against impact damage to the sleeve. The treatment serves to impart enhanced resistance to damage of the sleeve by holding the overall fibrous structure of the sleeve together during impact such as by stone impingement, even if underlying fibers themselves are broken or damaged.
