Do You Know Calcium Silicate Insulation Board?
Calcium silicate (CaSiO3), an inorganic substance, is mostly needle-like crystals. This non-toxic substance is soluble in strong acids, but insoluble in water, alcohol, and alkali. It is made by mixing silicic acid, quicklime and water in a certain proportion. Then the mixture undergoes hydrothermal reaction to generate calcium silicate microcrystalline slurry. Finally, calcium silicate is obtained through steps such as filtration, washing, and drying. In addition, Calcium silicate has a very high melting point, which reaches 1540℃ (2804℉), so it has good fire resistance.
Calcium Silicate Insulation Board
Another name of Kerui calcium silicate board is asbestos-free calcium silicate board. The main compositions of calcium silicate board are calcium silicate water composite (Ca2SiO4·nH2O) and fiber-reinforced materials. Its thickness is usually above 30 mm. Its density is 200-1000kg/m³. In the production process, it needs uniformly mix with the filling material and then added with modifiers.
Calcium silicate board for thermal insulation is also microporous calcium silicate, which is a white, hard new thermal insulation material. This kind of insulation material is very popular in electric power, petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, and other departments.

The Unique Advantages of Calcium Silicate Insulation Board
Silicate, the main component of calcium silicate insulation board, has a high melting point. Its melting point can reach about 1700℃ (3092℉), so it can maintain stable physical and chemical properties at high temperatures. Meanwhile, the fireproof calcium silicate board is a non-combustible grade A material. Even if it encounters a fire, it will not burn nor produce toxic smoke.
The pore structure of the calcium silicate fire board is mostly closed pores. The pore gap is small, and the connectivity between them is poor. This structure limits the penetration and diffusion of moisture to provide a good waterproof barrier. So that this ceramic fibre insulation board becomes a moisture resistant calcium silicate board. At the same time, its performance remains unchanged after being dried in wet water.
Easy To Install And Process
Calcium silicate insulation board is a lightweight insulation material, usually with a density between 100-200kg/m³. At the same time, the insulation board has good flexibility. It can be cut and folded according to the shape and curve of the building surface. It is not only convenient for installation but also reduces the consumption of labor costs.
Asbestos is a natural mineral fiber. This substance is widely used as a refractory material because of its excellent fire resistance, corrosion resistance, heat insulation and other characteristics. Cotton fibers are extremely carcinogenic Long-term exposure to asbestos can cause severe respiratory diseases. The use of asbestos-free silicic acid insulation board can help to protect the health of producers and users.
Specific Applications of Calcium Silicate Insulation Board
- Ceramic Industry: tunnel kilns and car cores and car plates for tunnel kilns;
- Metallurgical Industry: heating furnace, soaking furnace, annealing furnace, hot air pipeline;
- Petrochemical Industry: cracking furnace, heavy oil heating furnace, storage tank, hydrogenation furnace, catalytic cracking furnace;
- Cement Industry: rotary kiln, decomposition kiln, preheater, kiln hood, cooler;
- Building Industry: suspended ceilings, walls of non-load-bearing walls;
- Glass industry: bottom and walls of melting furnaces;
- Electric power industry: preheating furnace pipes, boilers, thermal power plants.
Differences Between Calcium Silicate Insulation Board And Calcium Silicon Plate
The difference between calcium silicate insulation board and calcium silicon plate is sometimes overlooked due to their similar names. Buyers need to pay attention when purchasing, although calcium silicate fire board and calcium silicon plate have similar applications, they are not the same material. The following will simply describe the differences between them.
Firstly, calcium silicon plate, also known as gypsum composite board, is a multi-component material. It is generally made of natural gypsum powder, white refractory cement, glue, and glass fiber. When the indoor air is humid, it can attract water molecules into the air. When the air is dry, it can release water molecules, which can properly adjust the indoor dry humidity to increase comfort. Main composition of calcium silicate board are quartz, mica, and wood fiber.
Secondly, calcium silicate board has good fireproof and waterproof properties, lightweight and high strength, good durability, heat insulation, etc. Calcium silicon plate also has the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, heat insulation, sound absorption, and simple construction. However, the fireproof and waterproof performance of calcium silicon plates is weak. So calcium silicate board will replace them gradually.
