Kaoclad™, is the combination of ceramic fiber blanket with an inorganic hardening agent, and it has excellent handling characteristics. It can be used as curved or angled launders in different casting areas. It is supplied as packed in sealed polyethylene bags to keep the moist structure of sheets. After drying (preferably between 60°C and 90°C), it provides strong, rigid yet lightweight insulation with texture.
Provided that the bags remain sealed and are maintained at temperatures within the range 10°C to 50°C. However, it is important to protect the material against frost.
The Main use of Kaoclad™ is as a protective hot face layer covering soft substrate fiber and other products in nonferrous applications and where a contoured profile is required, as well as for insulation of ladles and metal delivery systems in ferrous applications.
