Ceramic Baffle wrap???

Bought that ceramic baffle wrap from that Jim Paul guy along time ago. He doesn't seem to be around anymore. That wrap he sold was way better than the fiberglass stuff. Anyone know where one might find the good ceramic stuff?

ManWhore,
Here is a link I found. I have not tried them yet but the 100' roll of 3" tape (1/8" thickness) is what I am going to try

http://www.armilcfs.com/pages/CeramicFi ... ndTape.htm

I don't know pricing and I don't yet know if they have a minimum order.

I will call them and let you know what they say. If you happen to call first, let me know what they say.
Regards,
Lou

That is exactly what I have been looking for. Let me know how spendy, I'll go in out with ya. I'm sure we could round up a few more easilly too. Temps up to 2300 degrees, THATS what I'm talkin bout!!. Maybe you should just set up shop and be the next Jimbolia

I have been watching this thread with great interest since I have a set of V&H Quiet Baffels that will need re-packing some day. Looking at all the stuff that has been offered so far, it all seems kind of dinse. ( Except maybe the blanket material offered by beermaker. ) I may be wrong, but it is all advertised as heat insulating, so I'm thinking the stuff is to tightly woven to let exhaust gases pass thru effectivly, may cause to much back pressure. What do you all think?

I have some of the blanket type material that I have been using in my RH shorty. One of the problems that I have found, is that he stuff that I got is not made up of long fibers. The end result is that it comes apart and blows out much easier. I'm thinkin the fiber tape method would be longer lasting, just do many layers. the longer fiber should hold up better over time....Just my thoughts.

Can't remeber where I ordered the high temp blanket material from....

Ceramic Baffle wrap

ManWhore, et al,
Whew! I just got off the phone with those folks. That stuff is expensive. After picking up my jaw from hearing the price of the 1/8"x6"x100 foot roll of Ceramic tape ($12/linear foot) they recommended Silica tape. which still has a temp rating of 1800 degrees. For this stuff, a 100 foot roll of 2" x 1/16" thickness costs $295.

Still, for that price, my steel wool seems to work pretty good!

Ceramic Tape

Manwhor,
I ordered some tape from McMaster. 1/8"x3"x25ft. $35

• Temperature Range: -300° to +2300° F
• Heat Flow Rate: 0.38 Btu/hr. x in./sq. ft. @500° F
• Color: White

Aluminum-oxide based, high-purity refractory fibers provide continuous high-temperature insulation. They have good dielectric strength and electrical insulation properties. Use for wire insulation, furnacelining, metal castings, and foundry molds. Density is 12 lbs./cu. ft.

I'll let you know how this works out.

Regards,
Lou
