Syncarb Z2e²

Syncarb® Z2e² 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.

Morgan 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 shock resistance. These properties translate into a durable and robust crucible with excellent performance characteristics in lower temperature environments.

In addition, Syncarb® Z2e² features proprietary internal and external glazes to prevent low temperature oxidation and degradation that occur in aluminium and other low temperature alloys over extended periods of time.


Syncarb® Z2e² is designed to perform exceptionally well to melt and hold aluminium and other low temperature alloys in gas-fired and electric resistance furnaces.
