What is fiberfrax? It is a coating material that is used for ceramic fiber castables, fiber modules and refractory bricks. In order to ensure it is highly resistant, it is manufactured with purity oxides and high fibrous materials. It is usually designed ready for application under high temperatures of about 1500oC.
It can be used for insulation and as a result, it creates a surface that is resistant to flame impingement and abrasion.
FIBERFRAX CERAMIC FIBER BLANKET
Fiberfrax® ceramic fiber products are manufactured from alumina-silica materials and offer such characteristics as high temperature stability, low thermal conductivity, low heat storage, excellent thermal shock resistance, light weight, and superior corrosion resistance.
The Fiberfrax blanket and mat product family consists of a group of lightweight, thermally efficient ceramic fiber insulating materials that combine the advantages of both low heat storage and complete resistance to thermal shock. Offering a broad range of thermal capabilities and physical characteristics, this product family provides proven and effective solutions to a variety of heat processing applications.
Fiberfrax papers are manufactured using expert non-woven technology and offer exceptional insulating performance and flexibility. Advanced production techniques ensure a highly uniform structure characterized by low thermal conductivity, good handling strength and a smooth surface.
Fiberfrax® Duraboards are rigid, high temperature ceramic fiber boards manufactured in a wet forming process using Fiberfrax alumina-silica fibers and binders. All Duraboard products offer low thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, uniform density, and excellent resistance to thermal shock and chemical attack. They are also well-suited for applications experiencing vibration, mechanical stress and strong erosive forces.
The excellent rigidity and modulus of rupture possessed by these boards makes them strong and self-supporting, yet relatively lightweight and easy to cut or machine. These product features allow for quick, efficient handling and high installation rates, thereby enabling fast turnaround times in a variety of industrial insulation applications. Once installed, they can help reduce energy costs and cycling times due to their high insulating capability, as well as serving to protect refractory surfaces from thermal shock.
