Ceramic fiber is a type of high-temperature insulation material that is made from inorganic, synthetic fibers. This material is often used in industrial applications where high temperatures are involved, such as furnaces, kilns, and other high-heat environments.
Ceramic fibers are lightweight, flexible, and have excellent thermal stability. They are typically composed of alumina-silica material, although other variations are available that can include zirconia or other refractory materials. This type of insulation material is popular because of its superior insulating properties, as it is able to withstand high temperatures while still maintaining its structural integrity.
There are various forms of ceramic fibers available, including blankets, boards, and papers. The blankets are the most common form and are often used to insulate the walls of furnaces and other high-temperature equipment. The boards and papers are typically used in construction applications, such as insulation for walls and ceilings.
