Thermfrax® Gemcolite® AS FG26-116000 is Unifrax Engineered Thermal Component’s (UETC) higher temperature insulating fiber board. It uses man-made vitreous alumina-silicate and high purity high temp fiber 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 (2550°F), where there is a chance of overheating beyond 1426°C (2600°F) for short times. 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.
