Refractory Sheet Type 100
A Case History
User: McDonnell Aircraft
Div. of McDonnell Douglas
St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.
Application: Superplastic Forming/Diffusion Bonding of Titanium Aircraft Parts. In this process, metallic alloys are heated to 1650°F-to a plastic state-then formed over a die.
How RS-100 is used: The steel box, which contains the forming die, is lined with RS-100. On the sidewalls: 1" thick RS-100 boards are machined and sandwiched into 5" wide x 18" tall wedges. Stainless steel wires and buttons are used to laminate the 1" boards together. The RS-100 wedges are placed along the perimeter of the box. For the floor: depending on which die is in use, thick layers of RS-100 are built up over a layer of lower density insulating board. Stainless steel wear surfaces are placed over the RS-100.
