GrafTech introduces GRI™C insulation as the newest member of its GRAFSHIELD™ high-temperature insulation product line
GrafTech International is pleased to introduce GRI™C insulation as the newest member of its GRAFSHIELD™ high-temperature insulation product line.
- Superior energy efficiency through an engineered internal structure
- Temperature uniformity through consistent product quality
- Long life in harsh furnace environments through excellent impact and abrasion resistance
- Customized insulation packages available with complete machining services
Featuring carbon fiber composite (CFC) facing on one or both sides, the new GRI™C insulation is engineered to deliver sustained product life in harsh furnace environments. The excellent abrasion resistance of the CFC facing makes the product a superb choice for metal hardening processes involving high-pressure gas quenching where traditional insulation solutions are susceptible to damage from the incidental impacts that occur during loading/unloading, maintenance and even production operations. Customers benefit through reduced replacement costs and furnace down time.
Dr. David Kaschak, Global Director of Product Development for the GRAFSHIELD™ product line, comments, “Our heat treating customers need an insulation product that can deliver the thermal performance of GRI™ insulation without sacrificing product life in the harsh environments they operate in. GRI™C insulation is their answer.”
GrafTech’s GRI™ insulation is part of the GRAFSHIELD™ product line, which includes GRI™G insulation (faced with graphite foil) and GRAFBOARD® insulation (faced with the company’s proprietary AMW™100 heat shield). Each product delivers a unique set of benefits allowing customers to select the insulation solution that best meets their needs.
