BTU-BLOCK 1800 board/heat

treat products provide an efficient
backup solution to heat treat applications, particularly where the lowest thermal conductivity possible
is required to meet campaign
cycle requirements.

BTU-BLOCK boards and panels

can be custom sized (with kit
options) or cut to fit most irregular
surfaces and designs - speeding
installation, minimizing waste, and
minimizing joints in backup
