What is ceramic fiber blanket used for?
Refractory ceramic fibers are mostly used for thermal insulation at high temperatures and to make special composites. They are very expensive fibers because only a small quantity is produced and they are used in particular fields such as aerospace [84–86].
What is ceramic fiber insulation?
Ceramic Fiber Insulation rolls are designed to insulate pipes used in plumbing applications. Suitable for extremely high-temperature applications, this fiber material is distinct from pipe insulation intended for routine applications. Available in a variety of thicknesses.
Can I cut fire bricks?
Fire bricks can withstand more heat than standard masonry bricks, so they’re perfect for making fire pits and fireplaces. To make straight cuts, try your hand at cutting the brick with a hammer and chisel.

Fireplace refractory panels are a common repair. They are not meant to last forever. Years of heat and usage cause wear and tear, stress and heat cracks, abrasion and pitting, all of which can compromise the effectiveness of this safety barrier. They are made to be relatively easily removable and replaceable.
