Ultralite versus Conventional Refractories

Ultralite refractory products are designed to be modern replacements for more traditional insulation materials and refractories so they offer real alternative choices for the discerning manufacturer.

The low thermal mass of Ultralite refractory products, coupled with their superior lower thermal conductivity values, allow energy savings on every firing.

The two graphs below show a comparison of material densities & thermal conductivities, in which Ultralite refractory products can be seen with the lowest values particularly at elevated temperatures (above 1000°C /1832°F).
