High temperature insulation materials play a very important role in the various chemical process to retain loss of energy occurring through the surfaces of the containers. The thermal conductivity of the insulation materials depend on porosity, pore shape and size. The materials used in the insulation have a porosity of more than 40% to 90%. In extreme conditions, the porosity of the materials is maintained at 99%.
The global high temperature insulation materials market is mainly segmented on the basis of type of high temperature insulation materials, temperature range, end users and by region/country. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Ceramic Fibers, Insulating Firebricks (IFB), Calcium Silicate and Others. The Ceramic Fibers are further sub segmented by Refractory Ceramic Fibers – RCF, Low Bio-Persistent Ceramic Fibers and Polycrystalline Ceramic Fibers. Insulating firebricks are further segmented as, acidic, basic and neutral refractory bricks. The type of Calcium silicate studied in the report are lightweight, medium dense and dense. The other type of high temperature insulation materials include, perlite, vermiculite and microporous materials. By temperature range the market is segmented into two major types such as, 600°C -1,500°C and 1,500°C & Above.
