THERMAL VACUUM FORMING
Thermal Vacuum Forming: Log Sets, Brick Panels & More Vacuum Formed Shapes
Western Industrial Ceramics can form almost any refractory shape with insulation fiber using the thermal vacuum forming method. We have our own molding shop that gives us the capability to quickly produce very complicated shapes. We have numerous formulas to make insulation boards up to 3000ºF rated.
estern Industrial Ceramics can form almost any refractory shape with insulation fiber using the vacuum forming method. We have experience with refractory ceramic fiber, mineral wool and fiberglass formulas to provide refractory shapes for temperatures ranging from 1000ºF to 3000ºF. Our products serve a wide range of application: from fireproofing to metal flow control.
We make a wide range of products for the hearth and fireplace industry including vacuum formed log sets and brick panels from refractory fiber for temperature and aesthetic appearance. Many of these products are decorated with high temperature coloring for improved appearance.
Other products include flow cones, tap out spouts, hot tops, crucibles, hobby furnaces, tundishes, tubes, sight ports, and combustion chambers. We have our own molding shop that gives us the capability to quickly produce very complicated shapes in small quantities or large volumes depending on demand.
We have numerous formulas to make insulation boards up to 3000ºF rated. They can be vacuum formed from ½” to 6” thick and from 6” to 54” wide and up to 108” long. These boards can also be supplied machined to dimension utilizing CNC routers for complicated board patterns. They also can be imbedded with electric elements to make heating elements for any application requiring radiant heat.
Our engineers can help you with your design and specifications to provide economical vacuum forming services and refractory shapes.
