Thermal Ceramics Kaofil Moldable
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: Kaofil Moldable is a mixture of ceramic fiber, silica binders, and fillers which produces an insulating product with a semi-sticky consistency. This type of mix is ideal for applications such as penetration seals, metal stud protection (as in ceramic cone anchors), and for patching refractory cracks and fissures. The temperature of Kaofil Moldable and any surface to which it is to be applied should be 70°F (20°C) or above to ensure proper adhesion.

Drying is possible at room temperature; but depending on thickness, may require an extended period of time. Heated, forced air drying is recommended. This may be safely accomplished at any internal temperature below 212°F (100°C). Ventilation should be provided during drying to exhaust organic fumes resulting from vaporization of certain organic agents.
