Thermfrax® Gemcolite® AS FG26-116000 is Unifrax Engineered Thermal Component’s (UETC) higher-temperature insulating fibre board. It uses man-made vitreous alumina-silicate and high-purity high-temperature fibre to provide a higher-temperature rated board, with a higher safety range in case of accidental overheating. It is best used in applications with a higher continuous use temperature, up to 1398°C, where there is a chance of overheating beyond 1426°C for short periods. Gemcolite® AS FG26-116000 resists thermal shock, allowing for faster cycle times. UETC’s vast forming and machining capabilities allow Gemcolite® AS FG26-116000 to be made in a variety of shapes, besides standard boards and blocks, and can be tailor-made to customer-required shapes and specifications. This material is also easily cut and formed using hand tools.
