Ceramic Paper / Board

Ceramic fibre paper is a free thickness paper made from high purity ceramic fibres with a small amount of organic binder.

Advanced production techniques ensure a highly uniform structure throughout which is characterised by low thermal conductivity, good handling strength and good dielectric strength.

Easily cut with standard equipment, ceramic fibre paper can be wrapped or rolled around most shapes to provide highly effective thermal insulation in a variety of applications.

Ceramic fibre paper exhibits excellent chemical stability, resisting attack from most corrosive agents.

Exceptions are hydrofluoric and phosphoric acids and concentrated alkalies. If wetted by water or steam, thermal and physical properties are completely restored upon drying.
