The combination of a high density and low expansion ensures that RSLE 57 has superior thermal shock resistance compared to traditional ceramic matrix based materials.
RSLE57 is also ‘non-wetting’ when in contact with molten aluminium which makes the material ideal for a number of contact applications for aluminium transfer.
RS1200 is manufactured by combining structural alumina with reinforced ceramic fibre. It has high flexural and compressive strength compared to conventional engineering plastics. RS1200 is also non-combustible and completely inorganic.
