EPD document prepared for RBS Ravago Ceramic Fiber Blanket registration number S-P-04882 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
Ceramic Fiber Blanket is a product which produced by the melting the silica and alumina at high temperature and after formed fibers the product obtained by giving the form of a blanket at various thicknesses and densities with the pressure. Production Ceramic Fiber is an insulating material that is used for applications in between 750°C and 1430°C thermal insulation needed, which is consist of (spun technology) long, flexible and combined woven fibers. Ceramic fiber consists three elements basicly; silica, alumina and it is a thermal insulation material for high temperature. Ceramic Fiber blanket is used in the industrial furnace insulation, boiler, pipe and chimney’s insulation and it also used in all technical insulations, which requires high temperature. Ceramic Fiber is produced on the Turkey’s first high-tech ceramic fiber production line that has very low shot (unfiberized) content with the amount of high pure silica and aluminum. No chemical binders are used in the production of Ceramic Fiber thus during the first combustion it does not smoke and there is no odor during the combustion. It saves more energy rather than fire and insulation bricks due to having less heat in their structure. Ceramic Fiber is not affected by chemicals (except phosphoric and hydrofluoric acid and strong alkalis such as Na2O, K2O). Its thermal and characteristic properties remain the same after being wetted and dried, and it still has the same thermal insulation properties. Ceramic Fiber which has long fiber structure thanks to its production technology, due to this feature, no chemical binder is needed for It is production. Thanks to its ability to provide thermal insulation up to 1430°C in technical insulation, it provides energy saving in industrial use. It is capable of excellent sound and fire insulation as well as high temperature insulation.
The owner of the EPD – RBS RAVAGO – operates in more than 350 locations in 40 countries, being a member of the Belgium-based Ravago Group and a leader in the insulation industry by meeting the mineral rockwool requirement of an area of 20,000,000 sqm annually with its wide product range for thermal insulation, sound insulation and fire safety. RBS RAVAGO is located in Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone with its high technology equipment investments in a total area of 80,000 sqm with 56,000 sqm indoor area. RBS RAVAGO is the biggest mineral wool manufacturer in the region with an annual production capacity of 120,000 tonnes. In addition to 25 different types of mineral rockwool products, RBS RAVAGO is producing Ceramic Wool and Agro used in soilless agriculture. RBS RAVAGO has become the only company in the sector supplying all mineral wool products in the last quarter of 2018 by starting mineral wool production with the new production line of glass wool. RBS RAVAGO, the only manufacturer that can produce all mineralwool insulation materials under the same roof, offers a wide range of products with new RBS RAVAGO bio according to various application areas.
