ZHR Zirconia

ZHR Zirconia
August 18, 2016 Monofrax

Monofrax ZHR is a fusion-cast zirconia refractory, specifically developed for application in furnaces melting high quality, specialty glasses using electrical energy. Examples of such applications are TFT-LCD glass for computer monitors and flat screen televisions, Alumina Silicate glass, borosilicate glass, and halogen lighting glass. The chemical composition and the manufacturing process for making Monofrax ZHR have been carefully tailored to achieve higher electrical resistivity while retaining other key attributes of Monofrax Z such as extremely low blister and stoning potential, excellent corrosion resistance, virtually no exudation, and good thermal shock resistance.
