Product Catalog

Firwin Plus uses a patented technology that manufactures high temperature insulation wool with low bio-persistence.

Firwin Plus is an Alkaline Earth Silicate (CAS number: 329211-92-9) offering the same benefits as our standard FWN 1800 but with improved handling strength and enhanced thermal properties.

Firwin Plus
  • Manufactured from pure raw materials using a new manufacturing technology
  • Enhanced thermal properties; large nuisance dust particles have been effectively eliminated making the product soft to the touch and less irritating during use
  • Made of long AES fibers
  • Same chemical formulation as Firwin 1800
  • Outstanding insulating properties at elevated temperatures
  • Offers excellent thermal stability
  • Retains its original soft fibrous structure up to its maximum continuous use temperature
  • Needled from both sides and possesses high strength, before and after heating
  • Contains neither binder nor lubricant and does not emit any fumes or smell during the first firing
  • Flexible, easy to cut and shape and easy to install
  • Low heat storage
  • Good resistance to tearing
  • Immune to thermal shock
  • Good sound absorption
  • Exonerated from any carcinogenic classification under note Q of directive 97/69EC 6
