Building products and systems that deliver optimal thermal management performance, to improve processes and protect people
We are driving process optimisation by improving our manufacturing capabilities and technologies, to deliver best-in-class thermal management and passive fire protection solutions.
Our Fibre Centre of Excellence, in collaboration with customers and operations teams, have extended our Superwool® LBP portfolio to include Superwool XTRA, a fibre with a classification temperature of 1450°C (2600°F).
Alkaline Hydrolysis (AH) is a problem associated with un-dried refractory insulating castables (in fired heater linings) which has hampered the petrochemical industry for decades.
AH is costly and disruptive to the petrochemical industry which led our Technology Centre (based in the Americas), to partner with industry leaders to develop a monolithic that would mitigate the risk of AH formation. An accelerated AH test was developed to study the phenomena.
Through this development work we were able to develop a solution - Kaolite® AHR Monolithics.
