IFB holds a unique position within our portfolio of high temperature insulation products, in that it offers a unique combination of insulating properties with load bearing ability. IFBs are particularly suited to applications above 1000°C, where their thermal conductivity is as low as fibre based products (in some cases lower), but with structural integrity capable of dealing with erosive and abrasive environments.
Not all IFBs are the same! Different manufacturing methods for IFBs produce products with differing structure and chemistry, which in turn deliver different performance characteristics. This means our customers receive a product which is the most energy efficient and has the most cost effective service life possible. We maintain the most complete range of manufacturing methods available, at our facilities in Augusta (USA), Casal (Italy) & Yixing (China) which allows us to produce the most complete range of IFB products on the market today.
