DURAMUL ZR is a fused, high purity zirconia-mullite grain produced by the electric furnace fusion of Bayer process alumina and zircon sand. During melting, the zircon and alumina react to yield a mixture of mullite and zirconia.
Applications of DURAMUL ZR
DURAMUL ZR is used in specialty product applications where a high resistance to environmental corrosion and a low coefficient of thermal expansion are desirable properties. Applications include ceramic pressure casting tubes and refractory shapes requiring resistance to molten slag and molten glass.
