Vacuum Formed Shapes

Ceramic Fiber Vacuum Formed Shapes are available in a wide variety of shape configurations. These shapes are processed from alumina silica fibers for applications at temperature up to 1650°C (3000°F). To match Ceramic Fiber Special Shapes to specific applications, material compositions can be varied with different fillers and chemicals to produce special characteristics such as high strength, density and molten metal non-wetability.


  • Low thermal conductivity saves fuel
  • Low heat storage, reduces cycle times
  • Light weight-replaces heavy back-up insulations, less steel required
  • Excellent thermal shock resistance
  • Resistant to hot gas erosion
  • Resists most chemical attacks
  • Easy to cut, handle and install
  • Low sound transmission
  • Resists penetration by molten aluminum and other non-ferrous metals
  • Contains no asbestos


  • Tundishes, melting crucibles and hot tops for alloy melting
  • Heat insulation for industrial heaters
  • Small furnaces
  • Riser sleeves for foundries
  • Head boxes and lounders for continuous sheet casting
  • Die casting ladles
  • Combustion Chambers
