Kaowool 3000

Note: This is a variation of Kaowool High-Temperature Boards (2600ºF – 3100ºF Insulation Boards).

Kaowool® High Temperature Vacuum Formed Products

Thermal Ceramics high temperature vacuum formed products are rigid and self-supporting. Manufactured from a slurry consisting of Kaowool ceramic fibers, alumincell namend mulite fibers, alumina mix and binders. These products offer excellent thermal conductivity, strength and Thermal stability at elevated temperatures and have the capability to withstand chemical attack. Exceptions include hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid and strong alkalies. A small amount of combustible binder will burn out at approximately 300ºF. Additional hardness and strength can be reached with post treatments. Board capabilities are 48 x 36 x 1/4 to 3″.

Kaowool® HT is a low cost high temperature product designed for use up to 2600ºF. Kaowool HT is a rigid self-supporting product produced in a variety of sizes and thicknesses.

Kaowool® 2600 using high alumina fibers along with Kaowool ceramic fibers is an excellent dimensional stable product at 2600ºF where minimal shrinkages are very important.

Kaowool® 2800M is processed using a blend of high purity ceramic fibers and high temperature mulite fibers. This combination produces a product with improved high temperature stability. Kaowool exhibits excellent shrinkage and mechanical strengths after firing for temperatures up to 2800ºF.

Kaowool® 3000M is processed using a blend of high purity ceramic fibers and high temperature mulite fibers and alumina mix. Kaowool 3000M has excellent temperature stability, shrinkage and mechanical strengths after firing for temperatures up to 2900ºF.

Kaowool® 3000 is processed using a blend of high purity ceramic fibers, high temperature alumina fibers and binders. Kaowool 3000 has a continuous use limit up to 2800ºF.

Kaowool® 17C is processed using a blend of high purity ceramic fibers, high temperature alumina fibers and binders. This combination produces a product with improved high temperature stability. Kaowool 17C exhibits excellent shrinkage and mechanical strengths after firing for temperatures up to 2900ºF.
