Kaowool M

Note: This is a variation of Kaowool Low-Temperature Boards (2300ºF – 2400ºF Insulation & Structural Boards).

Thermal Ceramics vacuum formed products are a rigid self-supporting finer insulation manufactured from a slurry consisting of Kaowool ceramic fibers and binders. Thermal Ceramics products offer excellent thermal conductivity, strength and thermal stability at elevated temperatures. Thermal Ceramics products 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 achieved with post treatments. Board capabilities are 48 x 36 x 1/4 to 3″ with thcell namexception of PM Board which can be made 1/8″ thick.

Kaowool PM is manufactured to close tolerances with an excellent surface finish. Kaowool PM has a good thermal conductivity and can easily be die-cut.

Kaowool M is a low cost general duty insulation product available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. Kaowool M is a rigid self-supporting product that can be produced in different strength ranges to fit individual applications.

Kaowool S is a higher strength product with good non-ferrous molten metal resistance.

Kaowool HD is a low cost high strength product recommended for tough mechanical stress areas. Also, very good for back-up behincell nameense refractories.

Kaowool HS is a high strength product recommended for tough mechanical stress areas. Also, very good for back-up behind dense refractories.

Kaowool HS45 is designed for a temperature rating of 2400ºF with very high compressive and flexural strengths. Each board is machined to a thickness tolerance +1/4 – 1/16″. Kaowool HS45 is non-wetting to molten aluminum metal and exhibits good resistance to chemical attack.
