Ceramic Fiber Paper



Ceramic Fiber Paper from CeraMaterials

What is Ceramic Fiber Paper?

Ceramic Fiber paper consists primarily of high purity alumnio-silicate fiber and is manufactured through a fiber washing process. This process produces a non-woven matrix blend of the fibers, binders, and additives to form randomly oriented fibers that are flexible, uniform, and lightweight. This process controls the content of unfiberized shots to a minimal level within the paper. Available in 3 grades with a variety of dimensions and temperature ratings.

Additionally, our Binderless paper provides a smoke-free option and is manufactured without the organic binder system. The paper is free of organics and used when higher fired strength is required or in applications where even a small amount of organic burnout is unacceptable.

Operating at Higher Temperatures?

Ceramic Fiber Paper manufactured from polycrystalline fibers (PCW) rated to a temperature of 3000℉ (1649℃) is now stocked. This grade of Ceramic Fiber Paper is virtually free of shot content and has a smooth surface on both exterior surfaces. Properties include low thermal conductivity, flexibility, and good handling strength. This material is highly specialized for the most demanding and extreme temperature requirements.
