Morgan Advanced Ceramics Kaofil Fibres Thermal Ceramic
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide

Material Notes: KAOFIL is a mouldable form of Kaowool Ceramic Fibre which can be injected into cracks and voids, using a handheld pressure gun. It is very sticky and adheres well to both dense and light-weight substrates. After drying, KAOFIL is a hard, strong, yet light-weight insulating material which is thermally stable up to 1000°C and can be used in some applications up to 1250°C. Resistance to cracking and spalling is excellent and it is resistant to most forms of chemical attack, other than from Phosphoric and Hydrofluoric Acids and concentrated Alkali solutions.


  • Grouting around insulating bricks
  • Filling cup-locks
  • Patching and making good refractory insulating linings
  • Patching and repair or refractory fibre
  • Launders and linings of Ladles in non-ferrous applications.
