Syalon Molten Metal Sheath

Syalon 101 has excellent thermal shock resistance as a result of its high strength, toughness and thermal conductivity. It is extremely resistant to corrosion by most non-ferrous molten metals, particularly aluminium. Therefore there is no contamination of the melt.

Syalon 101 is non-wetting for most non-ferrous metals, making it very resistant to build up of dross and therefore very low maintenance.

Syalon 101 thermocouple protection sheaths allow constant temperature monitoring of the melt, resulting in improved quality for the finished casting. They are available in a range of standard sizes as shown in the table.

Temperature Controls keep a number of popular sizes available ex-stock.

Syalon components are non-ferrous molten metal handling offer the following benefits over conventional materials such as cast iron, silicon carbide or aluminium titanate:

  • Outstanding thermal shock resistance.
  • Excellent corrosion resistance to non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and zinc.
  • Non-wetting behaviour results in resistance to build up of dross.
  • Improved process reliability.
  • Cost effective.
