The Properties of Ceramic Fibre Blankets and possible usage.

First of all, it’s important to explain what a ceramic fibre blanket is. Ceramic fibre blankets are made from high-temperature aluminosilicate, and are usually reinforced or combined with high-temperature fibreglass. This results in a ceramic fibre blanket that has excellent strength, is lightweight, and at the same time can withstand temperatures of up to 2300 degrees Fahrenheit.

A ceramic fibre blanket in Melbourne would typically be white in colour and would have an extremely low thermal conductivity, and yet at the same time be compatible with most corrosive chemicals. They also have excellent handling strength and this makes it a great material to use in the home.

Ceramic fibre blankets are generally used to replace existing blankets used in wood burning stoves and inserts. They can also be used for a variety of other purposes too, such as for ovens, furnaces and boilers. The blankets work well for fire protection and as general high-temperature insulation. When used in any of these applications, a ceramic fibre blanket is very versatile and have a much shorter heat up and cool down time to regular fibreglass sheets or blankets.

Securing your ceramic fibre blanket

To fix ceramic fibre blankets in place, you can use a specialist ceramic fibre tape, which has almost exactly the same characteristics as the blanket itself. The tape is usually reinforced with wire or stainless steel to make it extremely strong indeed.

Ceramic fibre also comes in the form of ceramic fibre rope, which is incredibly useful, particularly for furnace door seals. Also, is it an excellent replacement for the old style asbestos braids. Ceramic fibre rope can be coated in a many different ways, the most popular being high-temperature silicone and graphite. They can also be reinforced with stainless steel wire to provide structural stability. Ceramic fibre rope is generally manufactured from high-quality fibre yarns and can withstand temperatures of over 1250 degrees Celsius.

All of these options combine to give unlimited flexibility in whatever project you are overseeing, whether that be in an industry, at work, or even in the home. The combination of a range of fibreglass materials and ceramic fibre materials means you should always have a selection of quality materials to do the job properly. Certainly if you have some high-temperature equipment, you should never be without adequate thermal protection. Not only is it safer, but by insulating your machinery properly, you are probably being more efficient and saving money.

Reduce energy loss

In the home, for example, fibreglass wool is commonly used in loft spaces to keep the heat in during the winter months. Tests have shown that up to 50% of heat can be lost without the proper heat insulation. Of course, this is also true for the workplace as well, and any mindful business owner should try to save money wherever possible. Ceramic fibre blankets, and fibreglass sheets are inexpensive and can be cut to fit many different places to provide adequate heat insulation wherever it’s needed.
