ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. : Refractory Sheet Cylinders
June 11, 2002
ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. has announced the introduction of its RS-201 and RS-202 refractory sheet cylinders. Both products are fiber reinforced ceramic laminate with useful properties to 2300F (1260C). These high-temperature products offer high strength, moderate thermal conductivity and excellent electrical insulation. They retain their strength and utility to levels far exceeding the maximum use temperatures of reinforced plastics and asbestos cement replacements. The products are 100% inorganic, non-flammable and contain no asbestos. The high alumina content of the cylinders makes them resistant to many environments, including molten aluminum. They undergo little or no outgassing on heating, are not brittle, and may be cut and machined with standard tooling.
