ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc.: Silica Blanket Type SB-2000
July 29, 2002
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. recently announced the introduction of silica blanket type SB-2000. This high-temperature insulation blanket is made of mechanically interlocked continuous filament amorphous silica fibers with useful properties to 1100C (2012F). SB-2000 is a strong needled blanket with very good handling properties. It is virtually shot free and has high resistance to attack by most chemicals. (Exceptions include strong bases and hydrofluoric acid.) This blanket exhibits thermal shock immunity, thermal conductivity and heat storage in the range of refractory ceramic fiber (RCF) blanket, and is useful in many applications where RCF is not desired.
