Original Press Release:
Ceraboard Introduction Into the North American Market
Thermal Ceramics announces the introduction of Ceraboard®, a refractory ceramic fiber board product, into the North American market. It offers the following high performance advantages:
o High temperature stability
o Low thermal conductivity
o Excellent thickness tolerance
o Low heat storage
o Rigidity and high cohesive strength
o Allows machining and cutting
o Resistant to thermal shock
o Easy application
Ceraboard's chemical composition consists of 65% silica and 30% alumina with a low level of organic binder. Ceraboard's maximum temperature rating is 2300°F and the continuous use temperature rating is 2150°F.
Ceraboard is very versatile and can be used in a variety of applications. These may include:
o Back-up for dense refactories
o Back-up in steel ladle and torpedo covers
o Ceramics Industry - Kiln linings and kiln car insulation
o Combustion chamber construction
o Chimney linings
o Glass Industry
o High temperature expansion joints
o High temperature insulation
o Tundish covers
o High temperature gaskets and seals
Ceraboard is marketed in two grades - Ceraboard-100 and Ceraboard-P. In applications requiring tighter thickness tolerances, Ceraboard-P is ideal. It has +/- 0.05" tolerance for boards with average thickness of 0.50" and +/- 0.10" tolerance for boards with average thickness of 1.00".
Both Ceraboard-100 and Ceraboard-P are sold in carton and pallet quantities. They are available in standard sizes of 24" x 36" and 36" x 48" in three thickness variations of 0.50", 1.00", and 2.00". Other sizes can be made available subject to ordering in minimum required quantities.
