Description:

Aluminosilicate ceramic fibre in plaster form, supplied wet ready to use. Very easily applied to any surface

Applications:

High temperature insulation

Heat shields

Burner cores

Chimneys

Thermal shock protection

Furnace hoods

Preheater lids

Ladle lids

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

Lightweight doors.

 

Properties:

Very low thermal conductivity; 0,2W/mK.

Electrically insulating,

Very low density; 1,3g/cm³ wet, O,7g/cm³fired.

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.

High reflectivity.

Low permeability compared to fibre blanket or modules.

High reflectivity.

Rapid commissioning.

Excellent adhesion to all surfaces.

Minimal anchoring required.

Chemical composition:

aluminosilicate 55%

Fe203 < 0,1%                                     

Alkalis O,27%

Volatiles 45%

Installation:    

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.
