One of the most important tasks of modern technology is the creation of a new class of ecologically safe heat-shielding and heat-insulating materials. Ecologically clean materials Ekowool™ successfully replace cancer-causing materials based on asbestos, ceramic and basaltic fibers.
In the developed countries the utilization volume of the ceramic fibers was greatly reduced and various legislations are pending to ban these materials completely. The above reasons encouraged the intensive development of new ecologically safe multifunctional (heat -, electro-, sound- protective) materials based on the silica fibers, containing 98 -99% SiO2.
In the past 3 years the production ofsilica fibrous materials, which were used earlier for military and space programs ("Shuttle" USA, "Buran" Russia), has increased 5 - 7 times.More >>
