Layering kaowool is not only another way of lining a forge, it's the preferred method (like wpearson said)! It allows for easier maintenance of the forge when you're swapping out old kaowool, plus it's easier to manage thinner blankets than one big heavy one.
Over the years \"kaowool\" has become a generic term for refractory blanket like Coke for \"Coca Cola\" was for any soft drink or a Ford was for any automobile. In fact it is used interchangably for many trademark brands, UNIFRAX Durablanket, Haberson-Walker Inswool, NuTec Max-Wool. . . Then there are the sub-brands, Kaowool B, Cerawool, Kaowool S, Kaowool RT, Cerablanket, Cerachem, CeraChrome, SuperWool, Refractory blanket is made from kaolin that is melted and formed into long fibers which is then formed into a mat then \"needled\" (sewn or quilted without thread). Lower grade product is a crumbly mat while the higher \"high purity\" grades are a strong resiliant blanket.While kaowool is NOT asbestoes it does contain silica which can cause silicosis if inhaled in large quantities. After 30 years of use the kaowool fibers themselves have also been found to be possible carcinogens IF ground fine enough and sufficient quantity is inhaled. In use new bkanket is not a huge problem but after long periods of high temperature use the blanket breaks down producing fine particles. So more care is needed in repair and rebuild situations than for new instalation. We recommend coating the interior of forges and furnaces with a refractory coating like ITC-100HT. This increases the blanket's temperature resistance, reduces dust, protects the blanket from mechanical damage and in the case of the ITC product increases furnace efficiency.REFRACTORY BLANKET BRAND / TYPE COMPARISONMaterial Mfg.NuTecUNIFRAXHaberson-WalkerMorgan Thermal CeramicsPropertyMax-Wool HPSDurablanket SInswool HPCerablanketKaowoolMelting Point3200 F.Class Temperature 2300 F.2300 F.2300 F.2400 F.2300 F.Continous Use Limit2200 F.2150 F.2150 F.2150 F.2000 F.Alumina/Silica47 / 5345 / 55 54 / 4554 / 4645 / 50-55Irontrace 0.02%0.2%trace1.0%Published Manufacturer's data.
