Item # Transite-1000, Transite-1000 (1000ºF Fiber Reinforced Cement Board)
Transite boards are high density fiber reinforced cement boards capable of withstanding high temperatures, loads, and electrical conditions with less shrinkage and degradation as compared to previous non-asbestos formulas. Transite is hydraulically pressed into monolithic boards from portland cement and selected non-asbestos, non-ceramic/refractory fibers. The board is then air-cured (Transite-HT) or oven-cured (Transite-1000) for exceptional machinability, and sanded to a standard 24 grit finish. The materials are non-combustible and can withstand operating temperatures of up to 1000ºF. Transite has low thermal conductivity, so works well for many structural insulating applications. It is non-conductive and will not rot or mold when exposed to prolonged dampness. The materials can be cut and machined with standard carbide shop tools.

Transite has exceptional machinability, so is capable of being machined into extremely intricate parts with excellent surface finish. Applications include load-bearing gaskets, press platen insulation, welding and high-temp. machine guards, laboratory bench tops and fume hood liners, bus bar supports, transformer spacers, electrical coil supports, arc shields, foundry core plates and blower boards, induction and metal-holding furnace tops/bottoms/sides and parts, oven shelving, soldering plates, molten metal splash guards, and welding shields.
