The LDS Moldable consists of ceramic fibers dispersed in a sticky water-based refractory binder. This material has putty-like consistency which permits application by caulking, troweling or hand forming. It possesses the advantages of ceramic fiber insulating materials : high temperature resistance, excellent insulating properties, excellent thermal shock resistance, chemical stability and ease of installation.
It adheres well to most surfaces. Drying is accomplished at a non-critical, elevated temperature and the resulting dried material is strong, hard and erosion resistant. It possesses excellent resistance to wetting by many nonferrous molten metals and is used extensively in molten aluminum contact applications.
