CERAMIC FIBRE RIGIDISER

ceramic fibre rigidizer-Vitcas CFR

Vitcas® Ceramic Fibre Rigidizer is a silicate compound for treating the surface of ceramic fibre blanket, modules, boards and vacuum formed components to give  a hard outer shell in order to seal the surface and protect against erosion.

Applications:

  • Surface coating for ceramic fibre materials exposed to high velocity gases
  • Hardening coat for ceramic fibre materials used in forges 
  • Sealing coat for ceramic fibre materials used in ceramic kilns to prevent fibres dropping onto the work 
  • Surface hardener for vacuum formed ceramic fibre shapes

Installation: Can be applied by brushing, dipping, rolling and spraying. Ceramic fibre surfaces should be clean and free of grease and oil.

Coverage: The coverage will vary with the  density of the blanket and the method of application but on average 5 litres will cover 2m2 as a surface coat and 20 litres will be needed to completely saturate 1m2 of 25mm thick ceramic fibre blanket (based on 1260 grade 128 density).
