Beams can be manufactured in a wide range of cross-sections, wall thicknesses and lengths (up to 4 m) via slip-casting or extrusion processes.
As-fired beams can be used ‘as-is’ or these can be finished to meet a customer’s required tolerances.
Applications include structural support in high temperature processes and metrology equipment.
Features and Benefits
- Very high strength
- Oxidation resistance
- Thermal stability
- Low mass
