Fibre bulks also provide stability and resistance to chemical
attack, however, exceptions include hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric
acid and strong alkalies (i.e. NaOH, KOH).
Fibre bulks are unaffected by incidental spills of oil or water and
their thermal and physical properties are restored after drying.
They are designed from raw material Calcium-Magnesium-Silicate
(CMS) and can be altered to achieve a customer’s desired properties
of fibre diameter, shot content, fibre length and form.
Fibre bulks have excellent features such as low biopersistance and
heat storage, thermal stability and god resistance to tearing. This
material is flexible and resilient, immune to thermal shock and has
an excellent thermal insulating performance.
These bulks are ideally suited to individual applications and are
available in chopped, un-chopped, lubricated, non-lubricated forms.
The maximum continuous use temperature depends on the application.
Traditional applications are:
♦ Expansion joints construction
♦ Base seals
♦ Low mass kiln car construction
♦ Tube seal fabrication
♦ Thermal and acoustical insulation
♦ As primary raw material for high temperature converted and
♦ Raw material of secondary ceramic fiber products e.g. blanket,
paper, board, shapes…
♦ Expansion joint seal
♦ Temporary repair of insulation
♦ Loose insulating fill for complex spaces and areas where access
♦ Fiber reinforcement for insulating concretes and cements.
