SoliBoard™ PCW INO-Grade
SoliBoard PCW INO-grade, with a classification temperature of 1600°C, is the top end of our SoliBoard product range. We manufacture our SoliBoard PCW INO from a mixture of poly crystalline fibers and a small percentage of our own developed and heat treated SoliWool HA fiber. The result of our development is a product which is showing less than 1% shrinkage, even tested for 24 hours at 1600°C.
As the SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is manufactured using special inorganic fillers there is hardly any fumes or loss of strength at first firing. It also means that at first firing there is nearly any loss of ‘green strength’ which is important in vacuum furnaces like in the semi conductor market. SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is very resistant to a wide range of polutions which make this an extremely durable and high performing board in a wide range of demanding refractory applications.
SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is the first of the SoliBoard High Temp Series and currently our highest temperature ranked product from this range. SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is manufactured from a mixture of poly crystalline fibers (PCW) and a small percentage of our own developed and heat treated SoliWool HA fiber (RCF) and performs in furnaces operating at temperatures till 1500°C continuously.
We tested our product at one of the refractory laboratory in Germany and the sample only showed 0.8 % shrinkage when exposed for 24 h @ 1600°C. SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is manufactured with special inorganic fillers and has a very low loss on ingnition at first firing. This feature is also results in an extremely low loss of the initial green strength which is required in applications like vacuum furnaces. The PCW fiber used in SoliBoard PCW INO-grade provides solutions in applications where standard boards would not be acceptable from a strength, handling or polluting atmospheres perspective.
Vulcor is offering one of the most extensive product ranges in high temperature board products. We offer a complete series of standard boards, a high strength series which is both offering higher green strength as better strengh after first firing, and a special series which are manufactured from mixed fiber chemistries (typically using very high temperature resistant PCW fibers) for the most demanding applications.
SoliBoard PCW INO-grade is manufactured on our continuous board line which has a total length of approximately 300 meter and a production width of 1200 mm. This line was set up in 2019, and is not only fully PLC controlled, but also equipped with robots to minimize manual labor. Our board line is equipped with the latest drying techniques, and is enabling double side surface treatment. This allows us to not only secure the highest quality, but also allows us to be competitive at high output.
Next to that we utilize a highly efficient drying technique which does not only reduced our energy consumption with 50 % compared to conventional forced air drying, but also allows us to manufacture uniform, lightweight, low shot and stable board up to a thickness of 100 mm at high consistency, quality and performance. In a world where reducing energy consumption and minimizing CO2 emissions is part of sustainable environmental drivers, it is good to realise that we have already taken the first step.
