Typical application

CZ66 is used in superstructure areas including tuckstone for reinforcement and textile fiber glass furnaces as well as for borosilicate glass furnaces..

CZ66 properties are also adapted to the expendable applications :

  • as mandrels to increase the lifetime in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical tubes using the Danner process,
  • as specific orifice rings with large thickness in borosilicate glass production.
