MORGAN ADVANCED MATERIALS is offering a low bio-persistance fiber paper insulation for expansion joints, gaskets, and back-up insulation in metal handling and processing. Superwool® fiber papers are non-wetting to molten aluminum and maintain low thermal conductivity, high tensile strength, thermal stability, and resistance to chemical attack.
The variety of uses includes expansion joints, back-up insulation, gasket applications, and heat shields, to conserve thermal energy where a denser product is not available or not applicable. According to the developer, Superwool also can be used to develop economic lining solutions.
Designed from Superwool bulk and organic binders, Superwool papers are specially processed to perform in high-temperature applications and feature a classification temperature of up to 2,372°F. Flexible and tear-resistant Superwool papers are widely used for expansion joints in trough sections, furnace tap-out plug cover and parting agents, and as a back-up insulation layer behind refractory materials for melting and holding furnaces.
The range of papers includes Superwool 351-E and Superwool 406-E, intumescent papers that expand up to 400%, making them a good choice for gasket and fire protection applications.
All Superwool papers can be customized to specific application requirements by hand, water jet, or CNC machining.
Morgan Advanced Materials papers are manufactured in the U.S. under ISO9001:2008 requirements. Many of the papers meet automotive, aerospace and industrial specifications, and customers will be able to identify the ideal application insulation solution from this extensive product offering.
