Ceramic fibre is a manmade mineral fibre made from high purity aluminosilicate material by controlled high temperature furnace melting and fiberizing process. The fibre is white and odorless, suitable for high temperature applications. The advantage of ceramic fibres include their light weight, low thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, strong handling strength, low heat storage, thermal shock resistance, fire and flame proof, chemical resistance and compatibility with most acids and alkalis (a few exceptions include hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acids and concentrated alkalis). Ceramic fibre varieties include aluminum silicate fibre, polycrystalline alumina fibres and aluminosilicate fibres which include Cr2O3, ZrO2, or B2O3. They are mainly available in the form of ceramic fibre cotton, felt, blanket, modules, paper, cloth, tape, and ropes. Ceramic fibre blankets are used for heat insulation in the petrochemicals, metallurgical and power generation industries, while ceramic fibre cloth find use in fire doors, insulated industrial furnace insulation, heat pipes and containers. The ceramic fibre ropes are used in industrial furnace expansion joints and pipe insulation windings.
