Monolux®

500 & 800

MONOLUX® 500 and 800 are low thermal conductivity, rigid calcium silicate based insulation materials. The materials are formulated without asbestos or mineral fibres and can be machined to close tolerances. With low shrinkage and good strength, the materials provide effective and stable insulation solutions for a wide range of demanding industrial applications.

With a typical flexible strength of 10MPa, MONOLUX® 800 is a versatile engineering material for arduous use where mechanical and compressive strength is required.

MONOLUX® 500 has excellent rigidity and low thermal conductivity which ensures exceptional thermal efficiency when used as a single insulating skin in industrial ovens and dryers. It is rigid and machinable and ideal for use as a thermal break in a wide range of applications.

The 500 grade is also used as an industry standard for pipe supports within power stations and petro-chemical environments.

MONOLUX® 800 is used in more demanding mechanical applications and is widely used as thermal insulation for use in platen presses and industrial dryers.

Conditioning

All products should be adequately dried and conditioned prior to use at elevated temperatures.
