Ceramic Fiber Blanket is made from long, flexible, interwoven fibers usually made of high purity Silica, Alumina and Zirconia which yields a strong, lightweight, yet durable, blanket for applications in a temperature range from 538°C (1000°F) to 1480°C (2696°F). As a result, it is almost an ideal choice for situations with direct subjection to flames. These blankets are frequently used in petrochemical, metallurgical and electric power industries.
Ceramic Fiber Blanket contains the heat resistance of a hard refractory (A hard refractory is a substance that has heat resistant properties) which gives it outstanding insulation value and hence, is an effective solution for a variety of heat processing applications. They are easy to install, require no curing or dry out time. Therefore, rapid heat up can be achieved with all Ceramic Fiber Blankets. Also, they will not crack or break into smaller pieces and are thermal shock resistant. They have reduced heat loss and heat storage versus other hard refractory products. In conclusion, this product is almost the ideal choice in its respective category.
