Kaowool Boards are produced from refractory fibre compositions specially

developed to give rigid, self-supporting boards with

excellent high temperature properties.

Board is designed for use in applications requiring higher

rigidity than blanket forms, and, as a result of its higher

density, has improved thermal insulation properties and

abrasion resistance.

Kaolin boards are obtained by vacuum forming

process. The process allows the production of white

boards in a wide dimensional choice, with an excellent

homogeneity throughout the thickness which ease

machining of the boards when needed.

Strong Board is produced by the addition of selected

refractory fillers to the ceramic fibre in order to improve its

mechanical properties. Strong Board has two times the

strength of 1260 Board, both when measured fired and



All Board formulations contain a small amount of organic

binder to improve the cold handling strength and this

burns out on first firing at approximately 200-300°C. Heat

treatment can be made to burn the organic binders on

special request.



Vacuum formed boards.




From 1260°C up to 1600°C, depending on grade.
