Thermal Ceramics

Ceramic and Glass

Partnering to reduce energy and emissions in ceramic and glass applications, through thermal management with innovative refractory solutions.

Providing high temperature Superwool® low biopersistent fibres, insulating firebrick, monolitihc refractory and WDS® microporous insulation products and systems for thermal management of ceramics and glass manufacturing.

Our engineered solutions are used in ceramic kilns and glass furnaces, helping to improve productivity through maximising space and process efficiency by reducing energy consumption, emissions and operating costs.

We make insulating firebricks (K™, JM®, TJM™) in standard and custom shapes. They are used widely in roller, shuttle, tunnel, and hobby kilns and in the glass furnaces, due to their strength and outstanding thermal and mechanical 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 revolutionary 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 our newest Superwool XTRA fibre products offer exceptional performance-to-weight ratio and are resistant to wetting and chemical attack. Superwool is the only low biopersistence fibre available with a classification temperature of 1450°C.

Our engineers are experts in providing optimal design solutions and material selection for the most demanding ceramic kiln and glass furnace applications, ultimately delivering improved productivity and environmental sustainability to your operations.
