The Insulcon Group

Leader in high temperature solutions - Refractories, Wearflex Expansion Bellows, Refrex and Textile Products

  • Calcium Silicate products - Application Areas

    Our calcium silicate products such as Calcon are designed amongst others as back up insulating lining in a wide variety of refractory constructions. The material is lightweight insulating board with excellent insulation value, high mechanical strength and good heat resistance. Calcium silicate products are designed to withstand maximum temperatures up to 1100°C.

    Next to a range of Calcon products, we can also provide you with high density calcium silicate products (dense calcium silicates). Our dense calcium silicates are known for their high strength and thermal insulation properties. This makes them suitable in particular for highly loaded and load-bearing structural components.

    It can be delivered either in plates or it can be die-cut into various shapes. Due to own production facilities The Insulcon Group is able to deliver custom-made materials and solutions for your problem areas. We provide a wide range of high temperature solutions.

    Examples of applications 

    Flare insulation (Petrochemical)
    Insulation for melting furnaces and regenerators (Aluminium)
    Insulation for forging and heat treatment furnaces (Steel industry)
    Aluminium launders (Aluminium)
    Furnace bottom boards

    When to use calcium silicate?

    The non-combustible material is available at a lower cost compared to other similar insulation materials of the same temperature. Most of the time the material is used as an outer layer within an application and it is combined with other insulation materials. Thereafter, the material offers electrical insulation, resistant to moisture and chemicals.

    Examples of application areas

    Furnaces (heat treatment, ceramic, induction furnaces);
    Ovens (domestic and industrial);
    Combustion (wall protection);
    Flare insulation;
    Insulation for melting furnaces and regenerators;
    Insulation for forging and heat treatment furnaces;
    Aluminium launders;
    Furnace bottom boards;
    Other high-temperature process equipment.
