||The purpose of this study was to identify substitution products for carcinogenic ceramic fibres. The possibility of using high-temperature glass fibres (alkaline and alkaline earth silicate (AES) fibres) was examined. Following a literature review of the topic, several questionnaires were compiled and sent to various target groups of experts. The findings of this survey, which differ according to the target group (industry experts, users, suppliers and intermediate processors), are discussed. As far as the usefulness of AES fibres as substitution products for ceramic fibres is concerned, opinions differ and the advantages of AES fibres do not appear to be overwhelmingly clear.
