GENERAL INFORMATION

ZIRCAR Alumina Bubble Type IB-100 consists of two sizes of hollow thin wall alumina ceramic spheres. These low density sintered ceramic bodies offer high packing strength and excellent thermal shock resistance. They also exhibit low thermal conductivity and resistance to chemical attack. IB-100 can be used as a bulk fill material or as a raw material used in casting of low density rigid shapes.
