High temperature insulation bio-soluble ceramic fiber cotton
Packaging & Delivery
Orcas high temperature insulation bio-soluble ceramic fiber cotton is a kind of fiber cotton contained SiO2, CaO and MgO chemistry, which meets European Union regulatory biodegradable requirements (Directive 97/69/EC).
These chemical components provides superior wetting resistance to molten aluminum and aluminum alloys. Testing with corrosive aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures has proven that bio-soluble fibers are superior to traditional alumina/Silica refractory ceramic fibers.
Average fiber diameter (microns) 3 to 5
Fiber Index: 55%-60%
Fiber Index is measured using the conical elutriation method
1. Expansion joint packing in refractory construction
2. Vacuum forming plate, ceramic fiber shaped pieces' material
3. Tube seal packing
4. Manufacture of cements, moldables and coatings
5. High-temperature papers and felts
Health & Safety
Orcas high temperature insulation bio-soluble ceramic fiber cotton, according to Directive 97/69/EC, possesses a fiber chemistry within the regulatory definition of a " man-made vitreous (silicate) fiber with random orientation with alkaline oxide and alkaline earth oxide content greater than 18% by weight." Orcas bio-soluble fibers have been tested pursuant to EU protocol ECB/TM/26, Revision 7, Nota Q, Directive 97/69/EC, with results that are below regulatory thresholds. As a result, Orcas does not require additional labeling or further testing.
