Cerachem Blanket

Note: This is a variation of Kaowool Blanket Products (1800ºF – 2600ºF Insulation Blankets).

Kaowool Blanket, Cerawool® Blanket, Cerablanket®, Cerachem® Blanket and Cerachrome® Blanket are air laid into a continuous mat and mechanically needled for added strength and surface integrity. Blanket products do not contain organic binders. Thermal Ceramic Blankets providcell namexcellent resistance to chemical attack. Exceptions include hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid, and strong alkalies (ie. Na2O, K2O). Thermal Ceramic Blankets arc unaffected by oil or water. Thermal and physical properties are restored after drying.

Additional Information

Cerachem Blanket is a 2600ºF (1427ºC) maximum temperature rated refractory blanket formed from a unique, patented, spun alumina-silica-zirconia fiber.
It is specially designed for applications where high fiber tensile strength, low thermal conductivity and low shrinkage are require. Cerachem Blanket is used extensively in high temperature units in the ceramic, chemical processing, and ferrous metal industries.
Thermal Ceramics Cerachem refractory blankets are ideal for a wide range of hot face lining and backup insulation applications in furnaces, kilns and other high temperaturcell namequipment.
