Morgan Advanced Materials recently announced the availability of Superwool® fiber papers, a low bio-persistent solution reportedly ideal for use in ceramics, glassSuperwool 300 and metals manufacturing processes, as well as in commercial automotive and consumer goods applications. The papers are non-wetting to molten aluminum and feature low thermal conductivity, high tensile strength, thermal stability, and resistance to chemical attack. Their variety of uses includes expansion joints, back-up insulation, gasket applications, and heat shields for kilns, home appliances, and even air bags.
 
The papers facilitate energy conservation and can also be used to develop economic lining solutions. Designed from Superwool bulk and organic binders, Superwool papers are reportedly specially processed to offer excellent performance in high-temperature applications and feature a classification temperature of up to 2,372°F. Flexible and tear-resistant Superwool papers are widely used for expansion joints in trough sections, furnace tap-out plug cover and parting agents, and as a back-up insulation layer behind refractory materials for melting and holding furnaces.
 
The range of papers includes Superwool 351-E and Superwool 406-E, intumescent papers that expand up to 400%, making them a good fit for gasket and fire protection applications. All Superwool papers can be customized to specific application requirements by hand, water jet, or CNC machining.
