High-temperature mineral wool

- Jul 24, 2018-

High-temperature mineral wool (HTMW) is a type of mineral wool (a wool-like material made from mineral fibres), created for use as high-temperature insulation - usually for use in industrial furnaces and foundries - generally defined as being resistant to temperatures above 1000 ┬░C. The first variety, aluminium silicate fiber, was developed in the 1950s. They are used primarily as insulation for furnaces and foundries.

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