Thermal Ceramics Cease 2000 Fire
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Cease Fire 2000 is a unique, two-component refractory foam. The dry powder (component A) is mixed with water to form a semi-viscous slurry and then combined with mild phosphoric acid (component B) at the pumping nozzle. The reaction produces a foam of approximately 1½ times its original volume. The process involves the generation of moderate heat from which evolves non-toxic gaseous by-products resulting in a network of independent cellular pores. The fast setting time of Cease Fire alleviates the need for extended drying or curing times. Since the reaction is complete, steam spalling on the initial fire is not a concern.


  • Fluid nature readily fills backup insulation voids
  • Highly insulating foam product (thermal conductivity equivalent to ceramic fiber)
  • Easily installed while unit is on or off-line
  • Unique pore structure allows for controlled crushing instead of catastrophic cracking
  • Suitable for use up to 2000°F (1093°C)
  • Typical Applications:

    Utility boilers:

  • penthouse floors and walls
  • superheater penetration
  • Iron and Steel

  • blast furnace stoves, hot blast mains, and bustle pipes
  • soaking pit sidewalls
  • coke oven backup and seals
  • Information provided by Thermal Ceramics
