ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. has announced the introduction of refractory sheet type RS-1200, a high strength composite designed for use as thermo-mechanical and electrical insulation in applications with temperatures as high as 1300C. RS-1200, a combination of strong reinforcing fibers tightly bound in an alumina ceramic matrix, is completely inorganic and contains no asbestos or RCF fibers. The composite exhibits greater refractory properties and homogeneity than other reinforced alumina matrix composite products and can be readily machined to tight tolerances with conventional carbide tooling.
