SILCAL 900, 1000, 1100

Lightweight calcium silicate

SILCAL is an environmentally friendly, lightweight, pressure-resistant and high-temperature-resistant insulating material based on lightweight calcium silicate. SILCAL has proved itself in the most different areas of industry as backup insulation. In particular for the construction of industrial furnaces, dryers and apparatuses but also in the cement and petrochemicals industries, SILCAL is the classical cost-favourable insulating material.

In addition to its outstanding thermophysical properties, SILCAL is resistant to the reducing protective gases, H2, CO, CH4, NH3, N2. SILCAL boards are surface-active and absorb water. For work in combination with refractory concretes, a hydrophobic sealing primer, which can be applied in our works, is recommended. In this way time-consuming work with barrier film can be dispensed with.

SILCAL is physiologically harmless and is classified by the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. as an environmentally friendly construction product. In addition the product has been issued the internationally harmonized ecological label type III in accordance with ISO 14025and EN 15804. The product is disposed of as construction rubble.

We will be pleased to inform you about the thermotechnical and economic advantages that can be achieved in combination with our microporous product SILCAPOR.
