IFB holds a unique position within our portfolio of high temperature insulation products, in that it offers a unique combination of insulating properties with load bearing ability. IFBs are particularly suited to applications above 1000°C, where their thermal conductivity is as low as fibre based products (in some cases lower), but with structural integrity capable of dealing with erosive and abrasive environments.
This comprises both Insulating Fire Brick produced by the Cast method at Casal & Augusta for service temperatures below 1300°C and those produced by the Slinger method at Casal for higher service temperatures. Our Cast Insulating Fire Brick in particular are truly market leading products, offering the lowest thermal conductivity available on the market today for applications above 1000°C, delivering big energy savings for customers in the ceramics, CPI, aluminium & iron & steel sectors.
Insulating Fire Brick products available for a wide range of temperatures, plus our high temperature pressed IFB at Augusta for the very highest temperature applications above 1600°C. These products offer superior performance in load bearing applications and in conditions where abrasion from mechanical abuse or flow of hot gases is severe.
