ZIRCAR Refractory Composites, Inc, (ZRCI) Florida, New York, introduced refractory sheet type RS-101 cylinders, ceramic fiber-reinforced structural alumina products with useful properties to 1,260°C (2,300°F).
These cylinders retain strength and utility to levels far exceeding maximum use temperatures of reinforced plastics and asbestos-cement replacements, such as calcium silicate. RS-101 not only makes an excellent replacement for rigid asbestos-containing products, but also may be employed to even higher temperatures. RS-101 is 100 percent inorganic, non-flammable, and contains no asbestos. It undergoes no outgassing on heating, is not brittle, and may be cut and machined with standard tooling.
RS-101 is available in standard and custom-size cylinders. RS-101 cylinders are ideal as replacement cylinders for many induction heating, forging, and melting applications.
