Ceramic paper

Produced from a blend of high purity ceramic fibers and organic binders, this paper is known for its excellent flexibility. It is also recommended for its outstanding handling characteristics, and high insulating value at high temperatures. Due to its low organic binder content, offgassing is at a minimum.


Because of its excellent flexibility, the 3R2555 is used for covering applications and for the fabrication of high temperature seals in complex shapes, since this material is easily die cut.
