Saffil Alumina Fibres are high purity polycrystalline fibres designed for use in applications up to 1600°C. Since their development in the early 1970’s Saffil fibres have been used successfully to overcome problems in demanding high temperature insulation and many speciality applications including automotive emissions control, metals and ceramics manufacturing, petrochemical and aerospace.
Saffil Blanket is extremely resilient and flexible which makes it an ideal material for expansion gap filling, seals and as a backing lining in the construction of industrial furnaces and kilns. It is used in the lining of kilns, furnaces and heaters in all industry sectors. It can be used to form stack bonded and convoluted modules – the modules are supplied in the form of mechanically fixed or veneering modules.
Saffil Bulk when used as a main component of modules, boards and papers provides cost effective levels of thermal stability unmatched by any other commercially available insulating fibres. Low thermal shrinkage translates directly in to long life and reduced fuel and maintenance costs, while low thermal conductivity gives superior insulation properties to products containing Saffil LA bulk products. Blended products manufactured using Saffil, alumino- silicate fibres and proprietary binder systems give exceptional cost effective performance up to 1600°C.
Saffil Paper is made from Saffil alumina fibre and a combination of organic and inorganic binders providing outstanding temperature stability, purity and chemical resistance. Saffil is a high purity crystalline alumina fibre, stabilised by a small amount of silica. It is characterised by uniform fibre diameters (2-4 microns) and a virtual absence of non-fiberised material. The process developed for making paper ensures the fibre characteristics are maintained, the paper is soft, flexible and resilient with smooth surfaces. Saffil Matt and Saffil Felt products are also available.
