Ceramic Fiber modules

TFL Ceramic Fiber Modules

Modules are formed from a continuous length of top quality ceramic fiber blanket that is accordion folded, compressed, and banded to the required density for ease of handling during installation. TFL is able to supply almost all available module formats, temperature rating, module densities, module sizes and attachment hardware. Some modules are available in large format (up to 24” x 24”) to minimize joints, maximize stability, accommodate for high-temperature shrinkage and lower installations costs. Custom modules and expedited manufacturing are available upon request.
