Fiber mats and high temperature wool

Insulating high-temperature resistant fiber mats and high-temperature wool are used in a wide variety of applications for process optimization, component protection or energy saving. Fiber mats and high-temperature wool are characterized above all by their low weight, temperature resistance and high flexibility of form.

Typical applications are:

  • Feuerstellen- / oven products
  • Iron and nonferrous metal production
  • Metalworking / Foundry
  • Petrochemicals / current
  • Ceramic and glass
  • thermal insulation
  • Passive fire protection

As standard, we have all common thicknesses and densities available from stock for you at any time.

Depending on the desired temperature resistance, the following raw fiber types are available:

Alkaline earth silicate fiber high temperature wool (AES Alkaline Earth Silicate Wool) consist of a mix of amorphous fibers, which are melted and then rapidly solidified using a combination of silica SiO2 and calcium oxide (CaO) with or without magnesium oxide (MgO). The fiber can be obtained by refining with other additives or a change in the material mix (addition of zirconium oxide (ZrO2) have a temperature resistance of up to 1260 ° C.

Different binder systems allow the raw fiber (bulk) as

- mat (Blanket)
- paper
- textiles (Tissues, packs, cords, tapes, tubes, etc.)
- plates (Boards)
- Vacuum formed parts (Shape)

to mold.

Different thicknesses or densities are available on request.

High temperature wool made of ceramic fibers, also known as ASW (Aluminum Silicate Wool) or RCF (Refractory Ceramic Fiber), have been used as standard fiber types for insulation solutions up to 1260 ° C for years. Consisting of a mix of alumina (Al2O3) and silica (SiO 2)2), the fibers offer not only high temperature resistance but also good chemical and mechanical properties.

By further refining the fiber with zirconium oxide (ZiO2), a temperature resistance of up to 1400 ° C can be achieved.

Polycrystalline wool (PCW Poly Crystalline Wool) consist of fibers with a very high content of alumina (Al2O3 > 70% by weight). They are produced in the "sol-gel process" from aqueous spinning solutions. By the subsequent heat treatment, the previously produced, water-soluble green fibers crystallize. Polycrystalline wools are generally used at service temperatures> 1300 ° C or under critical chemical and physical conditions, even at lower temperatures. The first production of polycrystalline wool dates back to the 1970s.
