Duratec®-XP is manufactured from a blend of calcium silicate, calcium aluminates and glass fibre. This composite is tough, highly machinable, electrically inert and displays excellent strength at elevated temperatures. It also provides similar characteristics to plastic when in application as it maintains its flexural performance and does not become brittle.
Due to its characteristics, Duratec®-XP is commonly manufactured into electrical insulation components, welding pads, thermal breaks, arc chutes and coil supports. We offer a comprehensive in-house machining service and have the capability to manufacture Duratec® into components from existing samples or drawings.

Please note: We previously supplied Duratec® 750 and Duratec® 1000, which have recently been discontinued. As a result, we may offer the following high temperature insulation boards based on your application:
► Sindanyo® H91
► Zircar® RS-1200 (see below)
Duratec-XP® is often used as components in induction furnace and electrically insulating arc chutes.
