ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc. has introduced its new refractory sheet type RS-100. RS-100 is a fiber reinforced, structural alumina composite with useful properties in thermal, structural and electrical insulation applications, as well as in the transport of molten non-ferrous metals to 1260°C (2300°F). According to the company, the new material has compressive and flexural strengths in the range of high temperature reinforced plastics, such as G-10 laminates, but retains its strength and utility to levels far exceeding the maximum use temperatures of plastics. The mechanical properties of RS-100 reportedly exceed those of all calcium-silicate materials, as well as Transite and other asbestos cement materials, over all temperature ranges.
