Aluminosilicate ceramic fibre in plaster form, supplied wet ready to use. Very easily applied to any surface
High temperature insulation
Thermal shock protection
High gas flow areas of fibre lined furnaces
Repair of cracks and joints
Protection of equipment
Protection of electrical cables
Upgrading of linings for thermal efficiency or faster cycle times.
Repair of broken element holding lips.
Sealing of kiln and furnace doors
Very low thermal conductivity; 0,2W/mK.
Very low density; 1,3g/cm³ wet, 0,7g/cm³ fired.
Low shrinkage; normally 12% but all taken up in the thickness of the layer, therefore no cracks.
Extreme thermal shock resistance.
Very low thermal mass.
Low permeability compared to fibre blanket or modules.
Excellent adhesion to all surfaces.
Minimal anchoring required.
Fe203 < 0,1%
Fibre Plaster is supplied wet in well sealed plastic 10kg buckets. The wet density is normally 1,1g/cm³.
It can easily be thinned down with water or it ordered stiffer for tamping applications
Onto brick; Blow dust off and trowel on.
Insulating firebrick or very porous surfaces; Rub a thin layer on very firmly before building up the profile.
Cables; No preparation required.
Ceramic fibre; Over fresh fibre, softening by water dilution usually helps.
Onto steel;Expanded metal, Mentex 72 or similar. Cut and bend a few strands backwards and tack them onto the steel so that the expanded metal sheet is about 5mm off the steel surface. Squeeze some Fibre Plaster through the mesh and then plaster over it to the desired thickness. Free standing structures; Use expanded metal as a skeleton.
Door seals; Plaster a narrow strip onto one surface, cover with fibre paper and close the door to press the Fibre Plaster into the exact thickness required.
