High Temperature Fibre and Refractory Insulation Solutions for Ceramics and Glass

The Thermal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials provides high temperature fibre, refractory and microporous insulation products and systems for thermal management of glass and ceramic manufacturing. Our engineered solutions are used in the production of ceramics and glass, help to improve productivity and process efficiency by reducing energy consumption, emissions and operating costs.

More than 1000 kilns around the world firing ceramic products such as tiles, whitewares and sanitary ware are lined with our thermal management insulation materials. 

We make insulating firebricks under the K®, JM™, TJM™ brands in standard and custom shapes. They are used widely in roller kilns, shuttle kilns, tunnel kilns and hobby kilns, because they are strong and offer outstanding insulating values across the temperature range. The K-23 IFB is an industry leading solution for hobby kiln manufacturers for its low density, low thermal conductivity and excellent hot load strength.

Our Pyro-Log® for low mass kiln car design incorporates low mass fibre "body" benefiting in lower heat absorption, less fuel consumption and more manageable maintenance.  

For more demanding applications our Superwool® Plus Blok and Superwool HT fibre products offer exceptional performance-to-weight ratio and are resistant to wetting and chemical attack. Superwool is the only low bio-persistence fibre available with a classification temperature of 1300°C. 

We use our expertise to engineer and install reliable thermal solutions that help to maintain optimal firing conditions inside the kiln, for better productivity, efficient use of energy and longer kiln life. We have manufacturing facilities and sales offices in more than 40 countries and advise on specific requirements for your ceramic or glass firing process.
