Helping you [...]
In many applications to 1200C, ZIRCAR Ceramics’ Alumina Silica Type AXL is a self-supporting high temperature thermal insulation capable of spanning fairly large distances. The 1.5” thick half-Octagon sheets are used in a large crystal growing process. Complete information about AXL can be found on our website using this link. https://www.zircarceramics.com/product/axl/
End dams used on Continuous Aluminum Sheet Casters ( Twin Roll Casters) are manufactured from a wide variety of materials. Which type of end dam is used depends upon certain operating requirements. For soft alloys cast in 0.25" thickness ZIRCAR Ceramics' ECO-27 is a cost effective material to use. CNC machined then hardened, ECO-27 helps many customers make better metal.

ZIRCAR Ceramics owns and operates nearly 2 dozen kilns. Several are small top loading kilns that are fired to 1300C. By replacing the original IFB lined lids with a stacked blanket (ZIRCAR’s Alumina Type NMB) we have extended the life of the lid significantly, made the kiln more energy efficient and with the simple lift system, made it much easier [...]

Check this out. For the very first time we have made a mold via 3D printing. Some additional development is needed but I am amazed at how much fun it was printing this mold – while everyone was asleep. More to be printed soon.
Our new AL-CEM/DB-1 is one strong Al2O3 adhesive. After receiving so many customer requests for a high temperature Al2O3 cement that would “bite” to many different materials, ZIRCAR Ceramics has responded and is now offering its new Alumina Adhesive Type AL-CEM/DB-1. DB-1, as we refer to it, is an easy to use, air-setting adhesive that cures to very [...]
So many of our customers would send us 3D files, such as Solid Works, when submitting request for quotations. For years we would ask them if they would either convert them to a AutoCad 2000i or dimensioned PDFs. We have recently upgraded our design/drafting software to AutoDesk Inventor and now welcome your 3D files. Click the photo or link below [...]
