Firefly 800 Millboard (FF800)

Note: This is a variation of Firefly Millboards.

Firefly non-asbestos / non-ceramic fiber Millboards are used in a wide variety of industrial applications for high temperature thermal insulation and gaskets. Firefly Millboards exhibit exceptional wear resistance. This, coupled with performance at temperature and ease of cutting, makes Firefly the ideal solution to all high temperature gasketing problems. In addition, Firefly Millboard has set the standard for roller cladding material, designed to meet the most stringent requirements of glass and steel producers worldwide.

Thescell namextremely versatile Millboards combine the most desirable characteristics of traditional Millboards with their own impressive features. These include:

  • Excellent thermal stability and high temperature mechanical strength
  • Good heat ageing properties
  • Good insulating properties
  • Resistance to molten metals
  • Excellent electrical resistance
  • Wide range of grades to match specific applications
  • Very clean product; die cuts and punches excellently
Firefly 800 Millboard (FF800)
The preferred material for conveyor roll coverings in float glass manufacturing. It’s exceptional wear resistance and extremely smooth surface finish makes FF800 a first class alternative to asbestos Millboard materials.
