Superwool Blanket

DESCRIPTION

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).

CLASSIFICATION TEMPERATURE

 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.
