Discover our XiROC® throat solution to enhance extra-clear or pharmaceutical glass quality. With lower #zirconia solubility into the glass, XiROC improves upwards drilling corrosion resistance and increases the lifetime of your furnace throat.
The void-free electrofused zirconia with improved upward drilling corrosion resistance, XiROC® 95 RT solution is dedicated to highly solicited areas where chrome content materials are not an option due to risk of coloration or contamination:
• Throat lintels and cover blocks.
• Distributors and feeder covers.
• Sidewall and weir wall. In specialty glasses furnaces such as: borosilicate, extra-clear sodalime and optical glass.
The very low solubility of XiROC® 95 RT provides a very high resistance to corrosion, particularly in areas subject to strong corrosion by upwards drilling.
