Transite is engineered by BNZ Materials, Inc. to handle higher temperatures, loads and electrical conditions with less shrinkage and degradation compared to previous non-asbestos formulas. Although Transite is rated at 450°F maximum continuous operating temperatures, it will accommodate 600°F after an initial heat conditioning. Transite is a high-density, non-asbestos board used in a wide variety of applications where a combination of high strength, thermal stability, electrical insulation or machinability is required. Transite is hydraulically pressed into monolithic boards from Portland cement and selected non-asbestos, non-ceramic / refractory fibers. The board is then air-cured for exceptional machinability and sanded to a standard 24 grit finish.
