Transite-1000 (1000ºF Fiber Reinforced Cement Board)

Note: This is a variation of Transite.

Transite boards are high density fiber reinforced cement boards capable of withstanding high temperatures, loads, and electrical conditions with less shrinkage ancell nameegradation 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.
