FIBERFORM

FiberForm® rigid insulation is a low density, rigid, carbon fiber insulation material designed to operate in vacuum and inert furnaces at temperatures up to 5000°F (2750°C). FiberForm® insulation can be supplied with a variety of coatings from TC-2™ graphite reflective paint for applications requiring a greater resistance to physical or chemical attack. Horizontal fiber orientation of FiberForm® insulation results in excellent through-the -thickness thermal insulation properties. Additionally, this high quality product has an increased resistance to chemical deterioration and moisture absorbance. FiberForm® insulation is available as boards, cylinders and discs.
