MONOLUX®-500

ADVANTAGES

  • Low thermal conductivity
  • High mechanical strength
  • Resistance to moisture and chemicals
  • Excellent machinability to close tolerances
  • Tough and durable
  • Dust free surface
  • Asbestos free


Structural calcium silicates

MONOLUX® materials are rigid insulation boards with a low thermal conductivity. They are specifically formulated without asbestos and mineral fibres. MONOLUX® products have low shrinkage and high strength and therefore provide effective and stable insulation solutions for industrial applications.

MONOLUX®-500 is a rigid machinable insulation used as a thermal break in process plants and as single skin insulation in ovens and dryers.

Working & processing
< #Back#
MONOLUX®-500 products can be accurately machined with special processing machinery and appropriate equipped tools. The fine material structure allows the production of precision machined parts.  They can be easily fixed in place by screws or Tucker Fasteners. When using screws, slot holes should be included. 

When cutting to size, the maximum recommended workplace concentration for dust generation must be observed. We advise local dust extraction in the cutting zone.
