Used to repair refractory linings in ovens, furnaces, kilns, boilers, incinerators, etc. in multiple industries, refractory ceramic fiber in the moldable/pumpable format is injectable for ease-of-use and ultra-convenience. With a putty-like consistency, this product is often used in conjunction with ceramic fiber boards or blankets to line high-temperature chambers and process equipment.
The Fiberfrax Specialties family of products includes Fiberfrax moldables, pumpables, caulks, coating cements, and rigidizers.
More about Ceramic Fiber Moldables and Pumpables
Fiberfrax LDS and LDS-AL moldables consist of Fiberfrax ceramic fibers dispersed in a sticky water-based refractory binder. These materials have a putty-like consistency which permits application by caulking, troweling, or hand forming. Both products adhere well to most surfaces. Drying is accomplished at a noncritical, elevated temperature, and the resulting dried material is strong, hard, and erosion resistant. LDS-AL moldable possesses excellent resistance to wetting by many nonferrous molten metals and is used extensively in molten aluminum contact applications.
Fiberfrax Pumpable-LDS, Pumpable-GS, and Topcoat 2600
Insulating Mix were designed for application into difficult-to-reach areas requiring insulation. Fiberfrax Pumpable-LDS and Pumpable-GS have temperature grade ratings of 1260°C (2300°F). Fiberfrax Topcoat 2600 Insulating Mix has a temperature grade rating of 1426°C (2600°F). A conventional air-operated extrusion pump permits application of these products directly from their container into furnace and boiler hot spots, refractory cracks, furnace door jambs, and other areas requiring high-temperature insulation and sealing.
Fibermax caulk is a high-temperature blend of Fiberfrax bulk fibers, Fibermax polycrystalline high-alumina fibers, and inorganic binder. This product is available in convenient-to-use caulking tubes. With a temperature grade rating of 1538°C (2800°F), it can be used to caulk joints and cracks in both high-temperature Fiberfrax lining systems and conventional refractories. Fibermax caulk is also used as a patching material around deteriorating burner blocks.
