Heat Resistant Vermiculite board Can Be Used to Creat Fireplaces

The internet is the place to find manufacturers who supply refractories and various types of heat resistance materials. These materials are in high demand not only in UK but internationally. One of the popular fire resistant boards is the Vermiculite board which is normally used in hearths, night storage heaters, boilers, register plates and fireplaces and stoves. The primary features of this type of board are that it has low thermal conductivity, which makes the machining process easy. Vermiculite board is stronger than any ceramic fibre board.

Vermiculite expands when heat is applied as it contains an aluminium-magnesium silicate layer due to the exfoliation process. This material that is produced in bulk form is used to process boards with the help of a press forming process. It is easy to sand, drill or saw this type of fireproof board with good wood working tools.

Depending on the application, it is possible to use various products that are heat resistant for best results. If one is considering using them for the fireplace, it has to be first pre-determined whether the application is for a cassette fireplace or an open fire. Instead of using dense bricks that are normally used in furnaces and wood-fired kilns, porous fire bricks can be used. These bricks are also referred to as refractory bricks as they can withstand very high temperatures and effect great energy savings because they also have low thermal conductivity. Porous fire bricks are lighter and provide better insulation as they contain many air pockets.

Fireplaces can be created by opening a chimney breast if you are not planning to build a new one. The opening is lined with fire bricks that are set in place with heatproof mortar. Make sure you have some fire cement handy in case you have to fix some minor cracks or joints on the fireplace board. The other option is heat resistant tile adhesive. The other type of fireplace that is popular is the “hole in the wall” fire or cassette fires. The fire opening should be lined with heat resistant plaster that is specially manufactured for cassette fires.

Look online and you will find websites that manufacture these types of heat resistant materials. When you plan to build a fireplace or stove, pay attention to the type of materials you should order to install a fireplace successfully in your home. You may need to get mortars and adhesives, chamotte bricks with high levels of silica and insulating bricks with ceramic fibers. Look for mortars and cements that contain high alumina content with magnesite or mag-chrome bricks. Contact the manufacturer for details on their products such as fireplace boards and they will guide you on the best options that you need to select to get those home fires burning. Make sure that the company you deal with is reliable and offers the best competitive price in your area. Look for special discounts and offers and have them delivered to you after reading the terms and conditions. Use the right vermiculite paints and fireproof insulation boards as per the manufacturing instructions for best results.

If you are looking for the best Vermiculite board or Fireplace board , contact VITCAS as they are a premium online company that supplies various types of heat resistant refractory materials with high temperature insulation properties.
