1. A method of forming a thermal sealing member, comprising:
combining an intermediate wrap member with an outer abrasion resistant wrap member,
wherein the intermediate wrap member comprises one or more layers of a ceramic-based fiber material;
wherein the ceramic-based fiber material is a ceramic-based knit fabric, comprising:
a continuous ceramic strand; and
a continuous load-relieving process aid strand, wherein the continuous ceramic strand is served around the continuous load-relieving process aid strand;
wherein the outer abrasion resistant wrap member comprises one or more layers of a single-layer metal alloy knit fabric formed by knit loops of a first metal alloy wire; and
wherein the single-layer metal alloy knit fabric can withstand temperatures greater than or equal to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit (538 degrees Celsius).
