I want something like k-wool for a forge idea I have, but I want it to be flexible, k-wool as it is from the supplier is perfect but I've heard you have to put the santinite stuff on it and that ruins it's flexability but I need it to be flexable and heat resistant like a blanket
I wasn't sure how to ask so if it doesn't make sense I'll try again

I should say is there a high temp blanket that doen't need anything done to it so it's still flexable?

It's called Kaowool.

But I didn't think you could use the kaowool without putting satinit or something on it and doing that will stiffen it?

as far as I know, all of the regular refractory blankets need coated with either a refractory cement or a rigidiser to keep the fibers from becoming airborne and damaging your lungs.

I recently found a "body soulable" refractory blanket that claims to be usable with no top coat. its called Superwool, from thermalceramics.com  I got a roll of it off ebay. Apparently, it is just like a regular refractory blanket, but the fibers that it is made from are body soulable, so your body can clean them from your lungs if they get in them.

It seems to work pretty well for a forge, as I have relined my first forge with it, and used it to line the new modular chopper/sword forge. I did coat the majority of the blanket with cement, to keep from damaging the blanket during use, but left the ends uncoated, to make a better seal between the doors and forge body.
