Kaowool B 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.
