The major advantage of Superwool over Refractory Ceramic Fibers is that it is a better insulator and costs less. When choosing Superwool over RCF it is possible to achieve a 20% saving in terms of dollar per R Value. The other major advantage is that Superwool has a unique low biopersistance and as such carries less health and safety requirements when handling the material. AES wools can be used up to 2000F and are a cost effective insulator at temperatures as low as 500F when space is limited. Typical applications include industrial equipment, fire protection, hearth and domestic appliances. Many of our customers who have used RCF in the past are now switching over to Superwool.
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 and 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 and 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. Uses include expansion joint construction, low mass kiln car construction, tube seal fabrication, thermal and acoustical insulation, filtration media, reinforcement for plastic and resins, filler in resins and paint.
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.
Modules are manufactured from Superwool fiber and combine the insulating material advantages of Superwool with rapid furnace installation. These modules are lightweight, have low heat storage and provide durable service.
