ZIRCAR Ceramics’ Castertip Type ASQ is rigid low-density combination of washed alumina-silica fibers and a high-purity inorganic alumina binder. Initially designed for use as a “SOFT” castertip on SCAL thin-strip casters.
ZIRCAR Ceramics’ Graphite Release Agent Type SHELLCOAT-B2 is a cost-effective synthetic graphite spray release used to prevent continuously cast 1xxx and 8xxx series aluminum alloy sheet from sticking to twin-roll caster shell surfaces.
ZIRCAR Ceramics’ SHELLCOAT-B5 Colloidal Graphite Release agent is a concentrated dispersion of a blend of precisely milled synthetic graphite powders in a water base. Developed for use on a wide range of continuously cast aluminum sheet alloys, SHELLCOAT-B5’s bimodal particle size distribution works to generate enhanced thermal transfer between twin roll caster shells and molten metal.
