What is the mantle made of?[edit]

I'm missing something here . The article says "Modern mantles are made by saturating a ramie-based artificial silk or rayon fabric with rare earths". So is the fabric ramie or artificial silk/rayon? In other words, what does "ramie-based" mean? 89.241.8.170 (talk) 10:12, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

fragile mantle ?[edit]

I know the mantle become fragile after the first burn, but the article says "very fragile", could someone with more knowledge than me explain this more clearly to readers, such as "will not be damaged in a gentle breeze, but a strong gust of wind may damage the mantle" kind of thing ? (I guess this is more applicable to outdoor lamps than indoor) 79.72.252.58 (talk) 12:44, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

My only experience of gas mantles was carivanning with my family in the 1960s. Our 'van had two gas lamps. The mantles usually (but not always) survived the annual holiday being towed round Europe, but if the mantle was touched by a match whilst being lit, it would invariable be holed, leading to a significant reduction in light output.82.16.100.247 (talk) 00:55, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

The material is about as robust as the ash formed when burning thick glazed paper. If you stand up too quickly and bump your head into a hanging mantle lamp, the mantle will probably be damaged. Touching the cold(or hot; never tried that, though) mantle is almost certain to break it. (experience based on kerosene fuelled lamp)--129.241.131.244 (talk) 17:51, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
