ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc.: Refractory Sheet
November 12, 2002
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. recently announced the introduction of its refractory sheet type RS-SI silica moldable. The new wet blanket product is a combination of high-purity amorphous silica fibers and an inorganic silica binder. Upon drying, type RS-SI moldable becomes a rigid structure with useful properties to 1200C (2192F). It exhibits good wet handleability, is easily cut with scissors or a knife, can be applied directly to equipment with complex contours, and can also be used to fabricate flat sheets or boards. Drying can be accomplished in an oven, with a hot air gun or torch, or through exposure to heat in the application.
