There are sectors in industry where things get really hot. Furnace and boiler engineering, foundries, steel and glass production, seals for fire doors – there are any number of applications where flat gaskets and seals can easily be exposed to temperatures around 1,000 degrees Celsius. After factoring in environmental regulations, the list of suitable non-metallic sealing materials can get pretty close to zero. That is precisely where Karl Späh GmbH and its environmentally sound Neotec Öko 1000 insulation material come in. The company is showcasing its solution exclusively at the IHK pavilion in Hall 4 at HANNOVER MESSE 2016.
The new material from Späh boasts an impressive ecological combination of materials comprising biosoluble mineral fibers and temperature-resistant fillers. The resultant material properties, which include a high application temperature and low thermal conductivity, make Neotec Öko 1000 an outstanding alternative to any products still based on ceramic fibers. What’s more, the compound material is highly flexible and, when damp, can be easily shaped to the contour of the area where it is to be used. It can also be used for surface seals in low-pressure applications. The new material is white and is available direct from stock in 1x1 meter, 1.0 to 10.0 millimeter-thick unprinted panels.
