Unifrax Corp. has introduced Insulfrax(R) paper, a new addition to its soluble fiber product offering. Insulfrax paper is an evolutionary product that is manufacturing by forming Insulfrax fiber in a nonwoven matrix. These fibers are randomly oriented during manufacture and then held in place with a latex binder system. A specialized paper making process is used to form uniform lightweight, flexible materials, including Insulfrax paper. This new product offers many unique problem-solving advantages, including high-temperature stability up to 1800F, low thermal conductivity, flexibility and ease of fabrication. Insulfrax fiber is based on a calcium, magnesium, silicate chemistry, which has been successfully used to solve a variety of application problems from 800 to 1800F. Insulfrax fiber also meets European regulatory requirements (Directive 97/69/EC).
