Thermax® application


The particle size distribution and chemical purity of Thermax® make it an excellent product for porosity control in ceramics manufacturing. It can also serve as a high purity reducing agent in making products such as titanium diboride. Thermax® is also an ideal choice for insulation of high temperature kilns and furnaces.
