1 Thermal TIle Product Data sheet 1. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION. FireMaster Thermal Tile is a pre- fired refractory tile. The Thermal tile is produced from 99% fused silica offering the best Thermal shock re- sistance available. These charac- teristics make the Thermal tile ideal for use as Thermal protection in burn buildings. 2. SYSTEM PROPERTIES. Zero Thermal expansion, provid- ing excellent Thermal shock re- sistance Spall resistance Easy installation and repair Recommended use limit of 2000 F. 3. TEST DATA. Thermal Ceramics Research Devel- opment Laboratory conducted a spall resistance test and a Thermal Fire Training Facility conductivity test. In both tests, a test panel consisting of six Thermal tiles attached to a 125 pcf cast concrete panel 3" thick was used.
2 Spall Resistance Test - The test panel was heated at 1400 F for 30. minutes and then exposed to a high pressure hose stream. The Thermal tile showed no signs of cracking or spalling. Thermal Conductivity Testing - Two test panels were used. Test 1 was performed with the Thermal tiles anchored directly to the concrete panel. Test 2 was performed with a 1 2", 6 pcf FireMaster Blanket between the Thermal tile and the concrete. In both tests, the temperature was recorded on the surface and 1 4". below the surface of the concrete. In both Test 1 and 2, the Thermal tiles were exposed to 1400 F for FireMaster Thermal Tile 30 minutes. Thermal Ceramics P. O. Box 923 Dept. 140 Augusta, Georgia 30903-0923 800-245-8008.

The results of the testing clearly show that the Thermal tile with- stands heating and water cooling without cracking or spalling. The temperatures recorded on the con- crete were significantly lower than the hot face and well below 600 F, at which portland cement starts to deteriorate.
