Another Insulation Fire Brick in the Wall from Morgan Advanced Materials


This latest development comes in response to overwhelming market demand and weighing at a mere 390 kg/ m3, the JM 23®-400 is the lightest class 23 product manufactured by Morgan to date. Furthermore, it is cast-produced and offers, on average, about 10% lower thermal conductivity compared to standard bricks in the JM 23® range, making it ideal for applications where a high level of insulation is required.

Morgan’s latest innovation follows extensive research & development and offers a solution to issues around heat containment in a variety of industries, ranging from ceramic production to anodes for primary aluminium. Suited to exactly the same applications as its JM-23® counterparts, the JM23®-400 has been proven to significantly reduce energy consumption, and can be used in conjunction with Blakite or JM 2600 to secure joints. Furthermore, it comes in a range of sizes, with options available to suit virtually any application.

Massimiliano Marchetti of Morgan Advanced Materials, explained: “The development of the new JM 23®-400 represents a significant step forward in our mission to produce high quality, lightweight insulation bricks. We closely monitor developments within the market and wherever there is demand, there is scope for a solution. We deliver solutions that solve the most pressing issues for our customers and it is this philosophy that underpins our status as the supplier of choice for thermal ceramics.”
