The optimum design window for RCF has dramatically shrunk since the introduction of AES fibers, but it is still recommend for applications over 2000F. Amorphous man-made fibers produced from the melting and blowing or spinning of calcined kaolin clay or a combination of alumina (Al203) and silica (SiO2), and other oxides such as zirconia in lesser amounts. RCF products are generally used in industrial equipment like furnaces and kilns under critical application conditions, in fire protection and in boilers and furnaces.
Excellent insulating properties, low thermal conductivity, excellent thermal shock resistance, low heat storage capacity & inorganic (smoke free). Used in furnace kiln, reformer and boiler lining, laboratory ovens, furnace door lining and seals, furnace repair, annealing furnace linings, investment casting mold wrap, stress–relieving blankets, reusable steam and gas turbine insulation, expansion joints packing, high temperature gaskets, fire protection & acoustical service.
Strong, thin, durable ceramic fiber based boards with a variety of high-temperature applications. Their use should be considered whenever there is a need for a thin, durable board with excellent insulating characteristics such as furnace and kiln hot face linings, combustion chambers for boilers and heaters, hot gas duct, flue and chimney liners, appliance and heat processing insulation & heat shields. Boards can be mechanically machined.
Produced in varying compositions, fiber length, compressed density, fiber content, fiber diameter, and lubricity to serve a wide range of customer needs, for example, expansion joints construction, low mass kiln car construction, tube seal fabrication, thermal and acoustical insulation, filtration media, reinforcement for plastic and resins and filler in resins and paints.
High-performance paper products for thermal, acoustical, or filtration management. Good resistance to tearing, high flexibility, resistant to thermal shock and have very low thermal conductivity and low thermal mass.
