  • Temperature resistance

    High temperature resistance up to 1600 ° C.

    Tensile strenght

    High tensile strength and resilience.

    Thermal conductivity

    Low thermal conductivity.


    Mats (blankets) made of high temperature wool are needled lightweight mats and provide an effective solution for a wide range of thermal insulation applications. They are characterized by excellent insulating properties, high resistance to chemicals, elasticity and dimensional stability. They are exclusively inorganic and therefore do not generate smoke or fumes when exposed to heat. They are available in a wide range of densities and thickness combinations, making them one of the most versatile product groups on the market.


    Polycrystalline wool (PCW Poly Crystalline Wool) consist of fibers with a very high alumina content (Al2O3 > 70% by weight %). They are produced from aqueous spinning solutions using the “sol-gel process”. During the subsequent heat treatment, the previously produced, water-soluble green fibers crystallize. Polycrystalline wools are generally used at operating temperatures> 1300 ° C or, in the case of critical chemical and physical application conditions, also at lower temperatures. The first production of polycrystalline wool can be traced back to the 1970s.

    Saffil mats are light, flexible mats needled with polypropylene threads made from high-purity polycrystalline wool. The polypropylene threads allow a higher strength and flexibility of the mat. The temperature resistance is up to 1600 ° C. Saffil mats can be used in a wide variety of applications. They are particularly suitable for applications where shot (melt beads) are not desired or where resistance to corrosion is important.

  • RBS Kompensator GmbH

    In 2009, at the request of many customers, RBS Kompensator GmbH was founded as the 100% sister company of KS Kneissl & Senn Technologie GmbH under Senn Beteiligungs GmbH.

    Building on the existing know-how about temperature-resistant high-performance fabrics, these began to be manufactured as individual pieces in the form of soft-material compensators by hand in Erl. Gradually, various sewing and welding machines were acquired in order to be able to produce all common shapes (round / square / round on square etc.) in the best possible way.

    Together with our team we try to live the idea of the "One Stop Shop" and make sometimes impossible things possible according to our motto: "Viribus unitis - with united forces".
