Skamolex is a highly insulating refractory product made from exfoliated vermiculite. Its primary use is as replacement firebricks and lining material in hearth and heating appliances. It has a very high temperature resistance up to 1,100°C to withstand direct flame impingement. It does not contain any ceramic or asbestos fibres and is non-dusting, non-irritant and odourless. It has a high mechanical strength, yet is easy to cut and shape with ordinary tools. All of which adds up to an ideal base for soldering or brazing. Available as a block 140 x 70 x 35mm or a board 300 x 200 x 15mm. Please take all necessary safety precautions when soldering, Environmental Health recommend goggles as a minimum.
