REFRACTORY SHEET TYPE RSLE-56 MOLDABLE

GENERAL INFORMATION

ZIRCAR Refractory Sheet Type RSLE-56 Moldable is a high silica fiber reinforced ceramic composite material that is easily cut and formed into flat sheets in addition to a wide variety of simple and complex shapes. When dried RSLE-56 Moldable becomes a hard rigid structure. Further heat treatment or exposure to process temperatures significantly increases the physical strength of this material.

RSLE-56 exhibits a very low coefficient of expansion 1.0 x 10-6 °C  which provides remarkable resistance to the thermal shock up to 1200°C (2192°F) in an oxidizing atmosphere and permits its use with rapid variation in temperature in that zone. Beyond 1200°C (2192°F) it transforms into a crystalline structure, while maintaining its properties up to 1650°C (3002°F) providing that there is no significant fall in temperature. At temperatures above this the material will exhibit surface glazing.

Engineered and produced with low thermal expansion raw materials RSLE-56 exhibits greater thermal shock resistance than moldable alumina matrix composites. RSLE-56's binder is locked in place and will not separate from its supporting fiber reinforcement resulting in an homogeneous structure throughout the material. RSLE-56 is 100% inorganic and once dried undergoes little or no outgassing.

RSLE-56 also exhibits exceptional non-wetting properties when used in contact with molten non-ferrous alloys making it useful in numerous molten metal contact applications.

RSLE-56 is 100% organic free and contains no refractory ceramic fiber. It is readily machined to precision tolerances with conventional tooling.

Rigid Boards, and Cylinders

Refractory Sheet Boards, Cylinders and Custom Shapes are engineered ceramic fiber reinforced structural composite with useful properties in thermal, structural and electrical insulating applications as well as contact and transport of molten nonferrous metals for temperatures up to 1650°C (3002°F).

Refractory Sheet Type RSLE-57 is a low expansion high strength reinforced silica matrix composite product. RSLE-57's exhibits a very low coefficient of expansion 0.3 x 10-6 °C  which provides remarkable  resistance to the thermal shock up to 1200°C (2192°F) in an oxidizing atmosphere and permits its use with rapid variation in temperature in that zone. Beyond 1200°C (2192°F) it transforms into a crystalline structure, while maintaining its properties up to 1650°C(3002°F) providing that there is no significant fall in temperature. At These elevated temperatures this the material will exhibit surface glazing while retaining its strength. RSLE-57 is non wetting with most non-ferrous metals.

Refractory Sheet Type RSLE-501

Refractory Sheet Type RSLE-501 is a low expansion high strength reinforced silica matrix composites in a cylindrical form. This remarkable material was designed for use as a high strength, durable insulator in induction heat treating applications. RSLE-501's very low thermal expansion coefficient, 0.3 x 10-6 °C, and high hot strength combine to give it thermal shock resistance not found in other structural ceramic materials. It provides remarkable resistance to the thermal shock up to 1200°C (2192°F) and beyond. RSLE-501 is non wetting with most non-ferrous metals.
