Zircar Refractory Comosites, Inc.: Refractory Sheet Board
October 14, 2002
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. recently announced the introduction of its type RS-1200 refractory sheet board. The new product is a high-strength composite designed for use as thermo-mechanical and electrical insulation in applications with temperatures as high as 1300C (2372F). RS-1200 is a combination of strong reinforcing fibers tightly wound in an alumina ceramic matrix. The material is completely inorganic and contains no asbestos or RCF fibers. RS-1200 exhibits greater refractoriness and homogeneity than other reinforced alumina matrix composite products and can be readily machined to tight tolerances with conventional carbide tooling.
