Ultra Low Shot Technology
High temperature fibers, both Refractory Ceramic Fibers and Low Bio Persistence fibers (also referred to as AES fibers) have been the product of choice for many high temperature applications over the last few decades. And all these fiber products consisted up to 50% of their weight in ‘shot’. Shot can be defined as small granulair glass which is formed during production, and thus did not convert to a fiberous material. These shot particles do not contribute to a better thermal insulation of the product, neither do shot particles help the mechanical properties of the blanket… Realistically the only thing ‘shot’ adds, is weight to the bulk, blanket, module, paper, board or felt product (and in application potential problems). The first low shot fiber (also referred to as Generation II fiber) product was launched in 2005 which made a massive leap foward on quality and performance of high temperature fiber products. The Generation II already delivered a part of the advantages of our ULS technology when compared to the standard fiber products.
