Ceramic fibre products
You can use this material for insulation up to 1,850 °C. Because of the chemical element weight ratio, the crust of the earth contains more than 82 % oxygen, silicone and aluminium. The inorganic textured ceramic fibre is manufactured from this raw material combination; therefore, it is fire-resistant and thermally insulating. State-of-the-art chemical technology allows these fibres to be produced by melting various oxides at high temperatures.
We provide you with the following ceramic fibre products:
- Ceramic paper
- Ceramic fleece
- Ceramic fibre plates
- Mouldable ceramics as binder compounds
- Special designs on request
Basic features of the ceramic fibre are:
Characteristics: Fire resistance, chemical stability & electrical insulation, thermal insulation, outstanding elasticity & sound absorption
Polycrystalline wool (aluminium oxide wool), or PCW wool in short, is produced from aqueous spinning solutions in the sol-gel process. PCW wool consists of fibres that have an aluminium oxide content (Al2O3) greater than 70 % by weight. The sol-gel process first results in water-soluble green fibres, which are then crystallised by heat treatment. This kind of wool is usually used at operational temperatures of more than 1,300° C.
Application fields are for example:
- Furnace construction
- Automobile manufacturing
- Ceramics industry
