Thermal Ceramics Kaowool CHROME
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: Kaowool Veneering modules, HP Grade, ZR Grade, *Saffil Grade are made from high-temperature grade Kaowool ceramic fibers or Saffil high alumina fibers. The modules are fabricated into 12" x 12" (305 mm x 305 mm) blocks using fiber strips turned edge-grain and slightly compressed with a gauze-type wrap. When the furnace is fired, the wrap will burn off and the modules will distend to provide a tight, uniform furnace lining.

Kaowool Veneering modules are part of the Unisystem family of products. They can be applied over a variety of refractory surfaces using K-Bond mortar. Unikote M or S surface coatings are normally applied over the module hot face to provide thermal stability and chemical attack resistance.


  • 12" x 12" (305 mm x 305 mm) blocks of ceramic fiber insulation
  • Easily installed over existing refractory surface
