Refractories, Fireproofing, and Thermal Insulation are specialized foams, mineral wools, textiles, fibers, refractory ceramics, coatings, jacketing and other materials used to provide thermal barriers, heat resistance, flame retardancy, flame suppression, intumescence and/or thermal resistance.
Refractory, Fireproofing and Thermal Insulation Categories

Aerogels (11 suppliers)

Aerogels have a pore structure on the nanometer scale. Silica, aerogel's pore network (2 to 50 nm), accounts for 95% of the material's volume. The pore network makes aerogels the lightest solid due to its low density.

Bricks (119 suppliers)

Bricks consist of fired ceramic or cement materials with a rectangular shape.  Different bricks are available for specific applications such firebricks or refractory bricks, acid bricks for flooring and red bricks for masonry applications.

Ceramic Insulation and Textiles (150 suppliers)

Ceramic insulation and textiles are fibrous refractories or thermal insulation products that consist of ceramic fibers in bulk, cloth, batting, paper or rope forms.

Fabric and Fiber Insulation (103 suppliers)

Fabric and fiber insulation materials comprise textiles which limit thermal transfer. They are frequently used to insulate structures, and are critical components of building sustainability.

Foam Insulation (90 suppliers)

Foam insulation or thermal insulating foams are low density elastomers or polymers, which provide a thermal barrier between components and a heat or cold source.

Glass Blocks (24 suppliers)

Glass blocks or bricks are architectural products that allow light to pass through, while also providing a level of privacy or obscuration.

Glass Fibers and Fiberglass Cloth (244 suppliers)

Glass fibers and fiberglass cloth consist of bulk, chopped fibers or continuous strands of glass. Glass fibers and fiberglass cloth is used in reinforcing plastics and composites as well as other specialized electrical and thermal applications.

Heat Resistant and Flame Retardant Coatings (90 suppliers)

Heat resistant and flame retardant coatings provide durability at high temperatures and/or flame protection around components.

Insulation Fabrication Services (113 suppliers)

Insulation fabrication services convert, cut, laminate, sew, and/or assemble fiberglass, foam, mineral wool, ceramic, or other insulating materials into custom fabricated products such as thermal covers, blankets, and pipe wraps.

Insulation Jacketing (73 suppliers)

Insulation jacketing consists of a metal sheet or plastic film that is wrapped around tubing or pipe insulation to protect the insulation from moisture, wear and mechanical damage. Adhesive, clips, ties or other fasteners are used to hold the jacketing mat

Mineral Wool and Glass Wool (38 suppliers)

Mineral wool and glass wool are made from slag, rock, glasses or minerals that have been melted and spun into fibers.

Refractory Cements and Raw Materials (148 suppliers)

Refractory cements and raw materials consist of castables, rams, aggregates and binders that are resistant to high temperatures.

Refractory Services (133 suppliers)

Refractory services for manufacturing, installing and repairing refractory shapes or monolithic refractories.

Refractory Shapes (215 suppliers)

Refractory shapes include recasted, preformed or sintered refractory products that are formed prior to installation in furnaces, boilers or other high temperature equipment. 

Thermal and Refractory Ceramics (96 suppliers)

Thermal and refractory ceramics are inorganic, engineered materials that are designed for high-temperature applications. They are used for thermal insulation and fire proofing, and also as structural materials. Additional applications include wear parts and tooling, electrical and electronic components, glass manufacturing, materials processing, corrosion protection, and ballistics.

Thermal Insulating Tapes (69 suppliers)

Thermal insulating tapes consist of a porous foam or cloth backing, which provides a thermal barrier around or between components.
