Superwool® Plus offers the same benefits as the other members of the Superwool family but with improved handling strength and enhanced thermal properties. Superwool® Plus is manufactured from pure raw materials using a new manufacturing technology. In addition to enhanced thermal properties, large nuisance dust particles have been effectively eliminated making the product soft to the touch and less irritating during use.
Superwool® Plus Blanket is made of long Superwool fibres having the same chemical formulation as the original and well proven Superwool 607® product. It is available in a wide range of thicknesses and densities. It exhibits outstanding insulating properties at elevated temperatures.
Superwool® Plus Blanket has excellent thermal stability and retains its original soft fibrous structure up to its maximum continuous use temperature. Superwool® Plus is needled from both sides and possesses high strength, before and after heating. Superwool® Plus Blanket contains neither binder nor lubricant and does not emit any fumes or smell during the first firing. Superwool® Plus is flexible, easy to cut and shape and easy to install. (CAS number: 329211-92-9).
Exceptional thermal insulating performance, compared with industry standards
Free of binder or lubricant
Low heat storage
Good resistance to tearing
Flexible and resilient
Immune to thermal shock
Good sound absorption
Exonerated from any carcinogenic classification under nota Q of directive 97/69EC
1200°C / 2192°F EN 1094
With Superwool® Plus, the consistent use of pure raw materials in all our factories Globally has lead to the 4% shrinkage temperature rising from >1100°C to >1200°C. For this reason, the classification temperature is now given as 1200°C in line with the EN1094 norm.
Superwool® 607® has been proven over many years to withstand continuous use in an oxidising atmosphere at 1000°C. This temperature is quoted as the Maximum Continuous Use temperature. For applications above 1000°C, Thermal Ceramics recommends Superwool® 607HT® which has a classification temperature of 1300°C.
