Silica fiber blanket.
ZIRCAR REFRACTORY COMPOSITES INC., FLORIDA, N.Y. This firm's silica fiber blanket Type SI Moldable is a wet blanket that combines high-purity amorphous silica fibers with an inorganic silica binder. Upon drying, the material becomes a rigid structure with useful properties to temperatures of 1,100[degrees]C. The blanket is easily cut with scissors or a knife and can be applied directly to equipment to form complex contours. It also can be used to fabricate flat sheets or boards. Drying can be accomplished in an oven, with a hot-air gun, with a torch, or by exposure to heat in the application.
