Research on the Preparation of Slag Wool Fiberboard with Sodium Silicate


Article Preview

The volume weight, compression properties and water absorption character of slag wool fiberboard were studied with sodium silicate as binder. The results show that: the sodium silicate binder can increase the volume weight of the fiberboard, improve the compression properties and water insulation of fiberboard. At the same time, the microscopic morphology of the slag wool fiberboard were observed through SEM, it can be gotten that the fiber is wrapped by sodium silicate binder, and a layer of effective adhesive films is formed on the fiber surface which makes the slag fiberboard have the higher stability at a high temperature.
