Although insulating cement seems to be one of the most popular and most used insulating refractories, it has not received a wealth of attention in recent years.  Insulating cement can be an excellent product for a wide range of different uses, providing a number of different benefits to businesses of all types.  If you are interested in insulating cement, it is paramount that you understand all of the different benefits and uses that the product brings to the table.  Many people may choose to go for other types of refractories, when insulating cement may be the most reasonably priced and most practical option available to them.

Take your time, evaluate all of the options that you have available to you, and determine whether or not insulating cement is going to be the best option for your situation.  Take all of the different benefits into account when evaluating different refractories in order to ensure that you find the material that is going to provide you with all of the benefits that you need.

Insulates and Seals

Insulating cement is an excellent product for kilns and furnaces, as well as a host of other applications.  Insulating cement is often used for arches because of its ability to be easily molded to the shape that is required, providing an effective seal.  The insulating and sealing abilities of insulating cement has made it a popular product for us over the years, helping us to serve hundreds of different clients to get the refractory benefits that they require for their project. Insulating cement is often used as a backup to other refractories as well, ensuring that you have the utmost protection and never risk heat loss and shell damage.  With the ability to refract heat and provide effective seals, insulated cement has become an excellent choice as a backup option to main refractories.

Ability to Level

Insulating cement is also an excellent consideration for businesses that need leveling as well. When you have a warped furnace wall, installing insulating cement is an excellent way for you to be sure that you are able to properly level your furnace, and make it as simple as possible for you to fix any leveling issues that have been plaguing you and your applications.  The leveling ability of insulating cement has made it a popular choice for individuals that have seen their furnaces become warped over time, and need a more practical option for fixing those issues.


Insulating cement is also often used during repairs as well.  It is an excellent choice for a damaged block and pipe insulation, quickly fixing any issues and allowing you to ensure that everything runs smoothly.  Insulating cement is often used for repairs because of its ability to be easily installed and applied, which means that there is only limited downtime for businesses that are using our insulated cement.  It’s ability to be used for quick repairs has helped us to help hundreds of businesses to fix furnaces and kilns without shutting down.

Irregular Fills

One of the most popular reasons why insulated cement is used is because it is able to fill irregularly shaped areas.  Sometimes these areas are flaws in design, while others are cracked or damaged areas.  Oftentimes, these areas are where a furnace, kiln, or other application has irregularly shaped areas that can be very difficult to install other types of insulation.  However, use of insulated cement makes it easy for you to apply the product to almost any shaped area, which is one of the best reasons to consider utilizing the product.

Easy to Use

Insulated cement is also quite easy to use as well.  All you have to do is to mix the product with water, and then insulated cement can be applied to almost any surface with a trowel or hose. In many cases, insulated cement can be applied by anyone who has ever worked with cement previously, and knows how to go about mixing.  Because it is so easy to apply, and is also quick drying, it takes only a limited amount of time until you are able to get back up and running.  The ease-of-use has brought many individuals to using insulated cement, and is one of the many reasons why we so often recommend it to clients.

Reduces Inventory

Insulating cement is also excellent at reducing inventory.  When you are performing maintenance, you may be able to reduce the number of different materials that are required for a number of different small jobs, which can be avoided through the use of insulating cement.  If reducing your inventory is something that you would consider a positive for your business, the use of insulating cement can fill in the uses of many other materials that may end up being more costly and more difficult to apply and install.  The reduction in inventory is an excellent reason to consider choosing insulating cement for your business.

Reduce Construction

Another huge reason why many individuals choose to utilize insulating cement is the fact that it also allows you to cut back completely on construction labor costs.  It will help you to eliminate the field cutting of block installations, and also help you to insulate irregular areas that otherwise would be quite difficult to fill and possibly require other jobs to be done in order to insulate the area properly.  Insulating cement has become a popular option for many businesses who are looking to reduce construction costs, labor costs and simplify many of the jobs that they do.
