hp 2/2014. Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCF), better described as Alumino-Silicate Wools (ASW) are used to produce high temperature insulation products for industrial applications, typically above 800 °C. They comprise alumino silicate and zirconia alumino silicate refractory fibres (further referred to as RCF).
A typical example for the end use of these products is the insulation of thermal processes in various key industry sectors such as metal production and heat treatment, ceramics, glass, cement, chemical processing and power generation.
The following position paper was agreed upon by CECOF, ECFIA and additional 12 associations and sent out to EU commission in March 2014.
