High-temperature insulation wool-1

- Jun 11, 2018-

High-temperature insulation wool (HTIW), also known as kaowool (a portmanteau of the words kaolin and wool), known as ceramic fiber wool invlove with specific coating until the 1990s, is one of several types of synthetic mineral wool, generally defined as those resistant to temperatures above 1000℃. The first variety, aluminium silicate fibre, developed in the 1950s, was referred to as refractory ceramic fibre.

Due to the costly production, and limited availability compared to mineral wool, HTIW products are almost only used in high temperature industrial applications and processes.
