Calcium silicate boards are white, non-asbestos, high temperature structural insulating boards that exhibit good thermal shock resistance and stability, consistently low thermal conductivity, high structural strength at elevated temperatures, incombustibility, electrical insulating properties when dry, excellent machinability, insolubility in water, and non-corroding properties. Foundry Service stocks a variety of calcium silicate boards in a broad range of densities for both insulating and structural applications including oven and furnace insulation, molten metal contact parts and assemblies, structural steel and pipe insulation, electrical cable tray and grease duct insulation, and a variety of specialty machined shapes and components. The high density grades Ultratemp-SD and Marinite-P are used extensively for high-temperature platen press insulation and machine base plates. Foundry Service’s extensive cutting and machining capabilities makes it easy to get the exact size and shape required for any job.
Ultratemp boards are inorganic, incombustible Calcium Silicate structural insulation boards. They feature a xonalite structure that results in exceptional strength and extremely low water of hydration. The materials are composed primarily of lime, silica, and reinforcing fibers. The product is white, essentially dust-free, and contains no asbestos. Ultratemp is available in thicknesses from 1/2" to 3" in 48" x 96" sheets, or cut-to-size as needed. Ultratemp materials should be specified when the following properties are required:
Marinite structural insulations are monolithic, incombustible and non-asbestos, and are available in several compositions and densities. Composed of Tobermorite calcium silicate, Marinite is available in thicknesses ranging from 1/4" to 3" and are easily fabricated from 48” x 96” sheets. The diverse selection of boards are produced by chemically reacting formulations of silica, lime, and reinforcing fibers followed by hydraulic pressure and various forms of curing and heat treating. The resultant boards exhibit the following properties:
Metalflow, Monalite, and Ultratemp-AL are strong, machinable, non-asbestos and inorganic Calcium Silicate insulation boards specifically developed for conveying, containing, handling and forming molten aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. Made of fibers, micro silica and ahydrothermally-produced inorganic binder, they are ideal materials for conveying and controlling the flow of aluminum. Manufactured for greater life and improved machining characteristics. High heat treatment removes excess water, and minimizes shrinkage that would normally occur in service. These unique board materials have many outstanding advantages. Metals do not adhere to them, even when they cool and solidify, so skull can be easily removed. ...
