How are Fiber Blankets Made?

Fiber blankets are a category of flexible, insulator materials designed for high-temperature applications. They rely on high strength fiber reinforced polymers that have been spun into strands for their exceptional mechanical properties, including near-absolute flame retardancy, ultra-flexibility, and reusability. Mid-Mountain Materials has developed a range of CERMEX® fiber blankets capable of withstanding operating temperatures of […]

What is an Insulation Material?

An insulation material is one that provides thermal insulation, or the reduction of heat transfer between objects. Heat transfer can be an issue in a range of industries, where two objects are in contact but they have varying temperatures. The heat flow between these two objects is unavoidable, but an insulation material can be used […]

Using Refractory Cements in High Temperature Applications

Refractory cement is a material that retains its high strength properties at extremely high temperatures. It is often used in applications that require high strength, wear resistance, and thermal resistance. The majority of refractory cements are a combination of clinker and an aggregate material. Clinker is the by-product of sintering in the production of cement, […]
