Silica Fiber Blanket
Silica Fiber Blanket Type SB-2000 is a high temperature insulation blanket made of mechanically interlocked, continuous filament, amorphous silica fibers having good properties at temperatures to 2012F (1100C). The strong needled blanket has increased handling properties, is virtually shot free, and resists attack by most chemicals. In addition, the blanket is not affected by thermal shock, has thermal conductivity and heat storage similar to that of refractory ceramic fiber (RCF) blanket, and is useful in many applications where RCF is not desired. The composition is 97.85% silica (6-9 Km diam silica fiber and has a melting point of 3090F (700C).
