Morgan Advanced Ceramics BTU-Block ™ Board Thermal Ceramic
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide

Material Notes: BTU-BLOCK Board is comprised of the microporous material sealed in a thin polyethylene foil. The BTU-BLOCK product line of microporous insulation is designed for use in high temperature industrial applications. BTU-BLOCK uses an optimized blend of raw materials to produce an insulation material with a uniquely low thermal conductivity. Unlike traditional fiber or ceramic based insulation, microporous insulation is based on ultra-fine particles of fumed silica, metal oxides and reinforcement fibers. These particles and fibers create a sub-micron pore structure that limits the convection of air, the conduction of heat, and the transmission of radiation. BTU-BLOCK insulation is designed to provide ultra-low thermal properties throughout the entire temperature range.

Applications: Back-up insulation in high temperature production processes:

  • Chemical Processing, Ceramic, Ferrous, Non-Ferrous
  • Commercial ovens
  • Hobby Kilns
  • Commercial OEM products
