CERAMIC FIBER

CERAMIC FIBER

Ceramic Fiber is produced from high purity aluminosilicate material through strictly controlled high temperature furnace melting and fiberizing process. The ceramic fibre is white and odorless, suitable for high temperature applications up to 2300°F. Ceramic Fiber products include cloth, tape, rope, braid, tubing, paper, blanket, etc. Ceramic Fibre is composed of long flexible, interwoven fibers manufactured by the “spun” process yielding a strong, lightweight, durable product. This material can be used for applications with temperatures from 1000°F (538°C) to 2600°F (1425°C).

Characteristics of Ceramic Fiber

Lightweight,  low thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, excellent handling strength, low heat storage, thermal shock resistant, fire and flame proof, chemical resistant, compatible with most corrosive chemicals, commonly used acid and alkali (exceptions are hydrofluoric, phosphoric acids and concentrated alkalis).

Chemical Composition: Al2O3 + SiO2 >97% ( Al2O3 47%); Fe2O3< 1%
