SILCAFLEX

Ceramic fibre products

Temperature range from 1.260 to 1.600 ° C

SILCAFLEX are ceramic fibres based on aluminium and silicon oxide for very demanding applications. The fibres are long and permit themselves to be formed into a variety of products such as blankets, cords, paper etc.

SILCAFLEX products have excellent resistance to temperature changes and are resistant to most chemicals. Exceptions are represented by hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid and alkaline compounds. With severe thermal loading we recommend our mullite fibre SILCAFLEX 160 with increased Al2O3 content.

Further forms of delivery such as SILCAFLEX loose wool are available on request.

Note:
Our EG safety data sheet will inform you on the protective measures to be taken when handling ceramic fibres as well as on the related health risks.

SILCAFLEX blankets

SILCAFLEX blankets are offered with a range of classification temperatures. They are flexible, especially low in shot content or, as the case may be, have zero shot content (SILCAFLEX 160) and are needled on both sides. They are characterized by high tear strength, low thermal conductivity and very high resilience.

SILCAFLEX paper

SILCAFLEX paper is produced from ceramic fibres and contains additional organic binders. This product is used in particular for thin thermal insulation applications (up to 10 mm).

SILCAFLEX EXP

SILCAFLEX EXP is an expanding paper based on aluminium silicate fibres, vermiculite and binders and serves for the sealing of gaps since it expands at temperatures in excess of 330 °C and closes the gaps.
