Vacuum-Formed Ceramic Fiber

What Is Vacuum-Formed Ceramic Fiber?

Vacuum-formed ceramic fiber starts from refractory ceramic fiber bulk in its raw state. This bulk is then put through the vacuum-forming process, where it can be made into different shapes. Vacuum-formed ceramic fiber comes in styles including:

  • Board
  • Burner
  • Block
  • Pipe
  • Fabricated part
  • Cylinder
  • Cracking furnace peep sight hole

Vacuum-formed ceramic fibers are shaped according to a customer’s specific requirements.

What Are the Characteristics of Vacuum-Formed Ceramic Fibers?

Vacuum-formed ceramic fibers have valuable characteristics such as:

  • Thermal shock resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Simple to cut and install
  • Low thermal conductivity and capacity
  • High chemical and thermal stability
  • Toughness and a high degree of crush strength
  • Good properties for insulation


Ceramic Fiber Applications

Vacuum-formed ceramic fiber is an excellent solution for the following:

  • Creating a thermometer or observation hole in an industrial kiln
  • As heat insulation
  • Producing high-temperature furnace doors
  • Supporting electric elements in laboratory furnaces
  • For launders or headboxes in the aluminum industry
  • As burner bricks for industrial furnaces
  • As insulation against thermal radiation heat in commercial or industrial heaters
  • For insulation pipes and shapes


One example of an industrial application or problem vacuum-formed ceramic fibers can solve is assisting with managing extremely high process temperatures. In applications with parts operating between 1,600 degrees F and 2,800 degrees F, refractory ceramic fiber is an ideal heat management solution. Elements that can work at this temperature include ductwork, flues and stacks on incinerators or kilns.

Specializations from McNeil are:

  • Large cylinders
  • Flue liners
  • Special shapes
  • Vacuduct factory lined stacks and ducts
  • Riser sleeves
