GENERAL INFORMATION
ZIRCAR Refractory Sheet Type RS100 is a ceramic fiber reinforced structural alumina composite material with useful properties to
1260°C (2300°F). It has exceptional flexural and compressive strengths in the range of high temperature reinforced plastics such as G7 and G10 laminates and retains strength
and utility to levels far exceeding maximum use temperatures of plastics. Mechanical properties of Type
RS100 sheet far exceed those of TransiteTM and other asbestoscement materials and is an excellent replacement for these rigid asbestoscontaining products. Type
RS100 can also be employed at much higher temperatures than these types of products.
Type RS100 is 100% inorganic, nonflammable and contains no asbestos. Its high
Al_{2}O_{3 } content makes it highly resistant to many environments,
including molten aluminum. It undergoes little or no outgassing on heating. It is not brittle and has high impact properties. Type
RS100 may be cut and machined with standard tooling. Type 100 sheet is used both as a fullsize panel and as a source for precisioncut fabricated components.
Refractory Sheet Material is available in Cylinder form as
Refractory
Sheet Type RS101 Cylinders. 
SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS

Type RS100 is the ideal Transite TM and asbestoscement board replacement.

Type RS100 is ideal for specialty furnace components such as bottom supports for quartz furnaces, furnace shells with element feed throughs and low temperature kiln and oven walls.

Type RS100 is used as Induction furnace components such as channel melter components, coil liners, coreless induction components, covers, tops, bases, front and back plates, coil supports, splash and coil shields.

Type RS100 is use in Nonferrous metal handling as spouts, troughs, and casting tips

Type RS100 is the ideal material for use as electrical terminal blocks and electrical resistor grids, due to its good electrical
resistivity, good mechanical strength and its ability to withstand temperatures to
1260°C (2300°F).

Type RS100 is used as an electrical insulator for induction pressing of diamond saw segments.

Type RS100 is used for brazing separators and fixtures. The high Al2O3 content makes it resistant to sticking in many environments including molten metals.

Type RS100 is used in the glass industry as dead plates, set out plates, wear guides and pusher pads in hot glass handling.
