Introduction to HTIW Products
Made of synthetic vitreous and polycrystalline mineral wools
Defined by a classification temperature above 1832°F (1000°C)
Typically used at temperatures above 1100°F (600°C)
Necessary for many high-tech products due to their versatile characteristics
Essential for minimizing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
Used at much higher temperatures than most other glass and rock wools
Some Common Characteristics of HTIW:
High temperature resistance
Low thermal conductivity
Excellent thermal shock resistance
Low thermal mass
High Temperature Insulation Wools are part of a larger group of Synthetic Vitreous Fibers (SVF), which also includes fiberglass and mineral wool.
Temperature ranges for the application of Inorganic Synthetic Mineral and High Temperature Insulation Wools.
