Thermal Ceramics Therm-O-Stix Fibrous Adhesive
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: Therm-O-Stix is a fibrous adhesive material composed of sodium silicate and cellulose fiber, and contains no asbestos fibers. Therm-O-Stix is a fast setting compound used for bonding board or blanket insulation to surfaces and has excellent adherence for holding in place while other refractories are being installed. It can be used to waterproof board and blanket insulation to prevent the insulation from absorbing moisture from product being installed, such as castable and moldable refractories. Therm-O-Stix can be brushed or troweled on the products for bonding to various surfaces.

When coating material to make impervious to moisture, coverage will be approximately 20 sq. ft. per gallon. When spot troweling to stick board or blankets to surfaces, coverage will be approximately 25 sq. ft. per gallon.


  • Finishing cement recommended for temperatures up to 1400°F
