Elevated Temperature Panel

Elevated Temperature Panel

Knauf Insulation Elevated Temperature Panel 1000° with ECOSE® Technology is a semi-rigid thermal insulation board (2.4 pcf, 38.4 kg/m3) bonded with ECOSE Technology.

ECOSE® Technology

ECOSE Technology is a revolutionary binder chemistry that enhances the sustainability of our products. The “binder” is the bond that holds our glass mineral wool product together and gives the product its shape and brown color. ECOSE Technology is a plant-based, sustainable chemistry that replaces the phenol/formaldehyde (PF) binder traditionally used in glass mineral wool products. Products using ECOSE technology are formaldehyde-free and have reduced global warming potential when compared to our products of the past.

Application

Elevated Temperature Panel 1000° with ECOSE Technology is suitable for use in industrial heating applications to 1000°F (538°C), such as hightemperature panel systems for ducts and precipitators, boilers, vessels and industrial ovens. It is ideal for use in metal mesh blankets.

Features and Benefits

Excellent Thermal Properties

  • Reduces operating cost.

Low Installed Cost

  • Lightweight.
  • Easy to fabricate.
  • Sizes up to 4' x 10' available.

Polybag and Sleeve Packaging

  • Damage resistant.
  • Reduces storage space.

Glass Mineral Wool is Resilient

  • Maintains integrity at elevated temperatures.

Indoor Air Quality

  • Certified by UL Environment for indoor air quality (IAQ) as low emitting products and where noted, have achieved the more stringent GREENGUARD Gold certification and verified to be formaldehyde-free.

Sustainability

  • Carbon negative: Knauf insulation products used for thermal insulating purposes recover the energy that it took to make them in just hours or a few days, depending on the application. Once installed, the product continues to save energy and reduce carbon generation as long as it is in place.

Glass mineral wool insulation with ECOSE Technology

  • Contains three primary ingredients:
    • Sand, one of the world’s most abundant and renewable resources
    • Post-consumer recycled bottle glass
    • ECOSE Technology which reduces binder embodied energy by up to 70%

Application and Specification Guidelines

Precautions

  • During initial heat-up to operating temperatures above 350°F (177°C), a slight odor and some smoke may be given off as a portion of the bonding material used in the insulation begins to undergo a controlled decomposition.
  • If natural convection is not adequate in confined areas, forced ventilation should be provided in order to protect against any harmful fumes and vapors that might be generated.

Storage

  • Protect material from water damage or other abuse. Cartons are not designed for outside storage. Vacuum packaged material can be stored outside if care is taken not to puncture the polybag.

Preparation

  • Apply the product on clean, dry surfaces.

Application

  • There is no heat-up cycle required for Knauf ET Panel 1000°.
  • The product should be secured with welded pins and washers, or studs and washers, and covered with sheet metal. An alternate method entails covering the insulation with a metal mesh and insulating cement, canvassing, and painting.
  • Pins and washers shall be located a maximum of 4" (102 mm) from each edge and spaced no greater than 16" (406 mm) on center.
  • Care should be taken to avoid over compressing the insulation with the retaining washer.
  • Dual-layer installation with staggered joints is recommended for applications where temperatures meet or exceed 550°F (288°C) and designed thickness is over 3" (76 mm).
  • When using the product at 1000°F (538°C), it is recommended that no more than 6" (152 mm) thickness be used.

Caution

Glass mineral wool may cause temporary skin irritation. Wear long-sleeved, loose-fitting clothing, head covering, gloves, and eye protection when handling and applying material. Wash with soap and warm water after handling. Wash work clothes separately and rinse washer. A disposable mask designed for nuisance type dusts should be used where sensitivity to dust and airborne particles may cause irritation to the nose and throat.

Glass Mineral Wool and Mold

Glass mineral wool insulation will not sustain mold growth. However, mold can grow on almost any material when it becomes wet and contaminated. Carefully inspect any insulation that has been exposed to water. If it shows any sign of mold it must be discarded. If the material is wet but shows no evidence of mold, it should be dried rapidly and thoroughly. If it shows signs of facing degradation from wetting, it should be replaced.
