In modern industry, energy efficiency has become a critical aspect. Increasing the useful life of equipment and avoiding operational downtime benefits the environment and optimizes operating costs. A fundamental way to achieve this is to minimize heat losses in industrial equipment and processes.
Refractory ceramic fiber coatings and mixes (wet products) are crucial. In this article, learn what they are and how they can benefit your industrial processes.
What are coatings and mixes?
These products offer moldable insulation solutions in various forms, including pastes. Typically, they are prepared using an industrial mixer, combining water, ceramic fiber, and other additives to achieve the desired physical properties.
Some of these products incorporate a vegetable dye that aids their application and inspection. Green is standard, but other colors can be requested to suit specific needs.
Types of refractory ceramic fiber coatings and mixes
Leveraging extensive experience, NUTEC manufactures a diverse range of wet products categorized by their type and application.
These products possess a malleable consistency, allowing for effortless shaping with manual tools such as spatulas. Their user-friendly nature makes them a preferred option for exterior repairs and maintenance tasks. In some cases, they can even act as a sealant, effectively repairing cracks and preventing further damage.
Additionally, these ceramic pastes excel in lining channels that transport molten metals, demonstrating exceptional resistance to high temperatures without compromising their integrity.
