ALSIFORM vacuum formed boards are used in a wide range of industrial areas, such as:

  • On the fireside for gas and oil firing with gas velocities 
  • Carrier material for electrical heating spirals
  • Extremely thermal shock resistant and temperature stable insulation material for periodically run plants 
  • Vibration-proof insulating material for all temperature ranges
  • Asbestos substitute, in particular for sealings
  • Smelting and heat-holding crucibles, troughs, runners, semi-finished and finished parts
  • Roller seals in industrial furnaces, flue gas ducts and elastic joints
