Product Description

KAST-O-LITE 20 (VSL-35)
DESCRIPTION

Kast-O-Lite 20 is a high efficiency insulating castable usable in direct contact


with hot gases under continous or intermittent operation without loss of thermal
efficiency. Kast-O-Lite 20 can be used to 1095C, is extremely resistant to
thermal shock, and has low thermal conductivity.
APPLICATIONS

Can include breechings, oil stills and heaters, flue and duct linings, lightweight
panels, back-up for hearths, car tops and arches, and heat treating, annealing,
and stress relieving furnaces.
