Insulating Fire Brick Properties
As a heat insulation material of industrial furnaces, heat-insulating fire bricks can reduce heat loss in the kiln, save energy, and alleviate the quality of thermal equipment. Generally speaking, insulating fire bricks can be classified into clay insulating fire bricks,high alumina insulating fire bricks, mullite insulating fire bricks and alumina hollow ball insulating fire bricks.
High alumina insulating fire bricks are featured with good insulation performance, high temperature resistance, and light weight, etc.
Mullite insulating bricks have the advantages of high refractoriness, good thermal shock resistance, excellent insulation performance, and high compressive strength, etc.
And alumina bubble insulating fire bricks have good performance in light weight, high mechanical strength, high compressive strength, good thermal shock resistance, low thermal conductivity, and save energy, etc.
Therefore, the properties of insulating fire bricks can be summarized as the following points:
- High compressive strength
- High mechanical strength
- High temperature resistance
- Good thermal shock resistance
- Low thermal conductivity
- Light in weight
Insulating Fire Bricks Composition
Many different types of refractory materials can be used in the manufacture of insulating fire bricks, such as gemstones, refractory clay, bauxite, refractory cement, drift beads, quartz sand, aluminum silicate fiber cotton(board), asbestos sheet, perlite,etc. However, insulating fire bricks are generally made from a refractory clay or some other type of raw ceramic material.
Insulating Fire Bricks Density
Insulating fire bricks have lots of different types, so the density of insulation fire bricks will vary. The classification of bulk density of insulating fire bricks is very different from that of heavy firebricks. The lower the bulk density of insulation fire bricks, the better the insulation performance, and actually, the aluminum content is basically the same.

Besides, RS company has established cooperative relationships with India, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Russia, southeast Asia and other countries and regions with its good corporate image, good reputation, strict quality management system, professional sales and after-sales service team.
How are Insulating Fire Brick Made
The way in which insulating fire bricks are made depending greatly upon the materials being used, in most cases it starts out with a material known as fireclay. It is fired inside of a kiln until it is partially turned into glass and may sometimes be glazed depending upon how it is intended to be used. They come in standard sizes for the most part, but they also come in a “split” form which is half of the standard thickness and is used to line the inserts in fireplaces and woodstoves.

Insulating fire brick recipe is the light insulation material.
Insulating Fire Bricks Classification
According to Insulating fire bricks’ bulk density, they are classified in the following parts: 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.3 (g/cm3, refractoriness 1600℃-1730℃).
According to the composition of the insulating fire bricks, they can be divided into the following categories:
- Fire Clay Insulating Fire Bricks
- High Alumina Insulating Fire Bricks
- Mullite Insulating Fire Bricks
- Alumina Bubble Insulating Fire Bricks
Fire Clay Insulating Fire Bricks
Fire clay insulating fire bricks are an insulating refractory product made of refractory clay as the main marerial, with the addition of 30% to 48% alumina content. The production process uses the burn-in addition method and the foam method. Refractory clay, floating beads, and refractory clinker were used as raw materials, mixed with binder and sawdust, by mixing, forming, drying and firing to obtain a product with a bulk density of 0.3-1.5 g/cm3. The output of clay insulation fire bricks accounts for more than half of the production of insulation firebricks. Clay thermal insulation fire bricks are used in a wide range of applications and are used in the thermal insulation layer of thermal equipment and industrial furnaces.
