ISO-Alustar Z2 is a premium quality hybrid ceramic bonded clay graphite crucible with a high silicon carbide and graphite content that is manufactured through an advanced iso-static pressing process.
Molten Metal Systems uses a proprietary processing technology that results in a product with a very homogenous and high density structure. This allows the crucible to obtain superior thermal conductivity over its entire operating temperature range, high mechanical strength and erosion resistance along with good thermal shock resistance. These properties translate into a durable and robust crucible with excellent performance characteristics in higher temperature environments.
ISO-Alustar Z2 is designed to perform exceptionally well to melt and hold copper and copper alloys in induction and fuel fired furnaces as well as in zinc distillation applications. ISO-Alustar Z2 can also be used in some precious metal melting applications especially in Globar furnaces.
