FibreCast’s paper and felt products are flexible and lightweight. They are available in a variety of formulations for many required thermal characteristics.
The type of paper and felt required will be dependent on the thermal characteristics required:
Soluble fibres are low bio-persistence fibers that do not cause damage to the human cell, making them a safer option to work with. Soluble fibres can be used with temperatures up to 2300°F/1260°C.
- Isofrax - Manufactured using Isofrax fibres, these fibres are vacuum-formed and are held together with a latex binder system. The result is a lightweight, flexible material.
- Insulfrax – Manufactured using Insulfrax fibres, these fibres are vacuum-formed and are held together with a latex binder system. The result is a lightweight and flexible material. This product is ideal when working with molten metals that may permeate other materials, such as aluminum.
High Purity Ceramic Fibre
FibreCast paper and felts are differentiated by thickness, density, fiber index and chemistry. They are uniquely formed to be flexible while also exhibiting typical characteristics of ceramic fiber – high temperature stability, superior insulation and ease of application.
They are often segmented into three grades:
- Utility Grades – the most cost-effective products in applications where performance characteristics are less critical.
- Standard Grades – used where reliability and consistency are important.
- Premium Grades – used either when organic out-gassing cannot be tolerated or when thermal performance and high fiber index is critical.
