Transite

Transite HT and Transite 1000

These non-asbestos, monolithic fiber cement industrial boards are used in environments up to 1000°F where high strength is the primary concern. These fiber cement boards are used in the foundry industry for flask liners, core, drying and carry plates, and induction furnace casings. Electrical applications include busbar supports, aluminum pot insulation, and electrode arm insulators.

Transite HT and Transite 1000 are also used as load bearing gasketing, spacers, supports, and machined parts for OEM applications.
