Unifrax Introduces New Fibermax® Needled Blankets



July, 2008 - Niagara Falls, New York - Unifrax I LLC, a global leader in the development and manufacture of high temperature ceramic fiber and soluble fiber products, introduces Fibermax® Needled Blankets.

Fibermax Needled Blankets are high temperature, light weight and flexible products manufactured from polycrystalline mullite fiber that can be exposed to temperatures up to 1600°C (2912°F). Fibermax Needled Blankets contain no organic binders or other additives which cause outgassing fumes or associated problems. In addition to exhibiting excellent resistance to most corrosive agents, Fibermax Needled Blankets also resist oxidation and reduction. The blankets are virtually free from shot (unfiberized particles). That makes it ideal for use in environments where the presence of shot is undesirable. The low shot content results in a product with extremely low thermal conductivity. Its unique fiber layup and needling process provide Fibermax Needled Blankets with outstanding consistency, handling strength and resiliency at elevated temperatures.
