- corrosion resistance;
- thermal cycling ability
A new AZS chromic oxide refractory has been developed that shows exceptional corrosion resistance to wool fiber glass and has demonstrated excellent performance in wool glass electric melters. This product consists of fused alumina-zirconia-silica grain with a matrix largely of chromic oxide. The resultant body has very good thermal cycling properties.
