ZIRCAR Refractory Composites: Silica Fiber Blanket

October 30, 2000
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc.'s new silica fiber blanket type SI moldable is a wet blanket that is a combination of high purity amorphous silica fibers with inorganic silica binder. Upon drying, the material becomes a rigid structure with useful properties to temperatures of 1100C (2012F). According to the company, its type SI moldable exhibits good wet handleability. It is reportedly easy to cut with scissors or a knife, and can be applied directly to equipment to form complex contours. Drying can be accomplished in an oven, with a hot air gun or torch, or by exposure to heat in the application.
