THERMFIBER Industrial Board Insulation is available in five nominal densities. 4 through 12 lb./cu.ft. and meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM C 612-00. Industrial Board products are available in various thicknesses from 1″ to 6″. in 1/2″ increments. Standard width is 24″; standard length is 48″. (Non-standard sizes available)
Start up Procedure
On initial start-up only, heat rise should not exceed 15ºF per minute to allow binder to dissipate without excessive temperature rise. Thermal conductivity is not affected. When insulation is to be used in applications exposed to high air velocities. Adequate protection must be provided to prevent erosion of insulation. Severe vibration may cause degradation of insulation under some conditions. Contact your representative for recommendations on unusual applications.
