Abstract : A variety of plastics materials were studied to gain data on their performance characteristics under neutral oxy-acetylene flame test conditions. The effectiveness of refractory filler systems for the reduction of erosion rate and thermal conductivity was also investigated. Thermal performance data are presented on materials and guides are provided for their selection in terms of erosion rate, time of temperature rise to 200 degrees C on the cold side, and index of performance.
