Customer Application Notes
Heat Cleaning Process: The products contain certain amount of organic binder materials(necessary for fiber carding process). The organic binder will burn out at lower temperature and generate smokes. This will not affect the ceramic fiber properties. After the organic binder is burned out the product will turn white again. In applications where smoke is prohibited, the product should be heat cleaned or treated first before it is put into use.
Product Handling: Require protective gloves, cloth, mask and dust control. Details on product MSDS.
