Silica Needled Mat

Our high temp silica needled mat (SNM) is a noncarcinogenic, meaning the continuous filament yarns have a diameter of ≥ 6-9 microns, making it non-respirable. The mat’s soft texture makes it easy and safe to install without gloves.

For these reasons, our silica needled mat is a great replacement where ceramic fiber is used.

Offered in 1″, 1/2″, 1/4″, and 1/8″ thicknesses

Features:

  • No shot
  • Made with a non-respirable fiber randomly oriented into a uniform blanket
  • Ceramic free
  • Made from continuous filament silica fiber
  • Highly durable with multiple reuses
  • Excellent thermal conductivity
  • Resistant to most chemicals
  • Offers good thermal protection up to 1,800°F
  • Melting temperature of 3,100°F
  • No special disposal required

Applications:

  • Insulation matting for high temperature insulation blankets
  • Sound suppression
  • Removable insulation pads
  • Power generating equipment
  • Industrial furnaces
  • Piping/Pipe wrap
  • High heat insulation
  • Thermal insulation

E-Glass Mat

Our e-glass insulation mat (ENM) is an incombustible, needled fiberglass mat.

Features:

  • Composed of 100% “E” type glass fibers 9-13 microns in diameter
  • Fibers composed in web form and mechanically needled together without chemical binders
  • Effective, low cost replacement for asbestos mats, millboard, ceramic or refractory fiber paper, mat and sheets and mineral fiber boards
  • Offered in 1/2″ and 1″ thicknesses
  • Service temperature of 1,200°F

Applications:

  • High temperature insulation applications where high heat resistance and flexibility is required
  • Removable insulation covers
  • Heat shields
  • Welding applications and gasket material in boilers
  • Industrial furnaces up to 1,200°F
  • High temp insulation

PS-BB Board

Our BB Board contains our silica needled mat on one side and has an aluminized coating on the other.

Features:

  • Aluminized foil rated up to 1,000°F
  • SNM side rated up to 1,800°F
  • Offered in 1/2″ thickness

Applications:

  • Flange, valve, and equipment covers
  • Oven liners
  • Removable insulation blankets
  • Die cutting
  • Welding curtains
  • Pipe wrap

Pre-Shrunk Insulation Mats

Our furnace (left and below) allows us to make our pre-shrunk insulation mats. Pictured is our furnace after 50 thermal cycles at around 1,475°F.
