Superwool Plus has major advantages over Refractory Ceramic Fibers. Superwool insulating fiber is a better insulator and costs less, possibly a 20% saving in terms of dollar per R Value. Superwool insulating fiber has a unique low bio-persistence and as such carries less health and safety requirements when handling in industrial and commercial applications. AES wools can be used up to 2000F and are.  Read More

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.  Read More

The Insulating Fire Brick (IFB) withstands high temperature and is a great insulator. The IFB insulating refractory bricks are rated for high temperature uses. The light weight fire brick application is broad, mainly as insulator in industrial and hobby kilns, forges, furnaces heated by electric spiral elements or gas burners for hot face lining or outer heat insulation. The Insulating Fire Brick (IFB) is.  Read More

When space is at a premium, nothing beats Microporous as an insulating material. Microporous materials contain pores with diameters less than 2 nm. Excellent insulating properties are achieved through minimizing conduction as the particles are spherical and therefore have minimal contact points, and minimizing convection as the particle size is small enough to inhibit the free path of a gas molecule. The superior insulating properties of.  Read More

You can’t beat the $/R Value of mineral wool. It is a good insulator with noise control properties. Mineral wool is both moisture and mold resistant with practical use temperature of up to 1100F. Will remain incombustible throughout the temperature range with a melting temperature of 2000F. Mineral Wool bats are semi rigid and can support their own weight making them and excellent option.  Read More

PCWs are a specialist fiber with limited applications when temperatures of over 2300F are encountered and RCF will not work. PCWs are made predominantly of aluminum (content typically 72-99% in the form of oxide) with the remainder consisting of silicon. The fibers are manufactured by sol-gel technology using gel extrusion, spinning and/or drawing in controlled air streams, using equipment/processes specifically designed to produce fibers.  Read More

ManniGlas is a premium grade glass alternative to silicone and ceramic fiber gasketing materials. ManniGlas excel in applications requiring superior thermal resistance where space is limited. Highly uniform surface and excellent thickness control. Ability to withstand continuous operating temperatures up to 1100°F, excursion 1200°F. Non formaldehyde-based binders are used. Outstanding dimensional stability makes it excellent for die-cutting intricate shapes. Great flexibility and strength, plus.  Read More
