FAQ

Why do Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ ACS bricks offer such high thermal shock resistance?

ACS bricks’ thermal shock resistance is due to a combination of carefully selected high quality raw materials designed to ensure the perfect thermal balance; and an engineered structure with a high degree of stress attenuation. This combination allows equipment to move through thermal cycles while suffering very little damage to its inner structure, ensuring a long service life.
