Thermal Ceramics


Flexible, thin and excellent tensile strength high performance papers for your thermal management application.

Manufacturing a range of high performance papers for high temperature applications, to meet requirements ranging from economic mineral wool grades to high purity alumina and alumina-silica grades for demanding applications.

Paper products are processed to offer excellent performance in high temperature applications and offer an alternative to traditional solutions due to their unique properties of high refractoriness and excellent non-wetting characteristics to applications requiring direct contact with molten aluminum and stability and resistance to chemical attack.

Insulating paper conforms easily to complex shapes and can be die-cut and used in a wide range of applications as thermal insulation and are especially suited to use in gaskets and as a parting medium.
