Calcium Silicate Insulation

Thermal conductivity - temperature and k-values

Calcium silicate is commonly used as a safe alternative to asbestos for high temperature insulation materials.

Features of Calcium Silicate insulation board and pipe insulation

  • light weight
  • low thermal conductivity
  • high temperature and chemical resistance

Calcium Silicate is rigid, high density material used for high temperature applications ranging 250 oF (121 oC) - 1000 oF (540 oC).

The relation between temperature and thermal conductivity is indicated in the diagram below:
