High purity alumina-silicate fibres are used in the production of ceramic fibre papers, which are made of a lightweight, exceptionally flexible substance. This homogeneous refractory paper provides exceptional tensile and dielectric strength as well as outstanding resistance to thermal shock and flame. The binding substances entirely burn away when the fibres are ignited, leaving the alumina-silicate fibres to function as a thermal barrier at temperatures as high as +1260°C.
Paper made of ceramic fibre is frequently utilised in situations where flexibility is necessary. It can be used to wrap piping in hot situations or as a supplemental insulating barrier. The material can be easily cut with a sharp knife or die-cutting equipment, and it can also be made into gaskets.
Gaskets, seals or linings for high temperature appliances such as ovens, kilns, furnaces and boilers. Ceramic fibre paper can also be used as a replacement for asbestos paper, back-up insulation in launder systems, automotive heat shields, expansion joints, fire and spark protection, wrapping high temperature pipe casting or as a one use consumable insulator.
