Application Sheet

Application: Thermal Insulation in Continuous Casting of Copper and Master Alloys

Product: Refractory Sheet Type RS-100 Rings

Application Information: ZIRCAR manufactures RS-100 rings for use as thermal insulation in continuous horizontal casting (Wagstaff process) of brass and other alloys which sees temperatures of 1093-1260C(2000-2300F). RS-100 replaced Transite which failed in this application.


RS-100 replaced health hazardous Transite;

RS-100 has little or no shrinkage in the 1093-1260C(2000-2300F) range;

RS-100 can be machined to tight tolerances.
