ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc.: Refractory Sheet Cylinder
December 18, 2002
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. recently announced the introduction of its type RS-101 refractory sheet cylinder. This ceramic fiber reinforced structural alumina product offers useful properties to 2300F (1260C). It retains strength and utility to levels far exceeding the maximum use temperatures of reinforced plastics and asbestos-cement replacements. Type RS-101 is 100% inorganic, non-flammable and contains no asbestos. Its high Al2O3 content makes it resistant to many environments. It experiences no outgassing on heating, is not brittle, and may be cut and machined with standard tooling.
