LyTherm® LDF PAPER is a lightweight insulating material composed of large diameter, inorganic, high temperature fibers processed into a highly flexible sheet. It is recommended for intermittent use at temperatures up to 1500°F (815°C) with a continuous use of 1400°F (760°C), in applications requiring an alternative to man-made vitreous blown or spun fiber products.
LyTherm® LDF PAPER contains no shot or unfiberized particles, which results in an extremely clean paper with very low thermal conductivity and a smooth, homogenous surface. LyTherm® LDF PAPER was designed specifically for use in the appliance, automotive, and consumer equipment industries where these ceramic-free papers offer the advantages of high insulating efficiency, a clean shot-free surface, and less irritation during handling.
LyTherm® LDF PAPER contains an organic binder to provide increased handling strength at room temperature. It possesses good chemical stability and resists attack from most corrosive agents. If it becomes wet due to water, steam, or oil, its thermal and physical properties will return upon drying.
