Dangerous Dan,

This is actually more interesting than I had anticipated. Lots of good information if you can search it out.

I particularly liked the part about Simriz good to 615 degrees but not being recommended for:

Molten metals
Gaseous Alkali Metals
Halogenated Freons/Fluids
Uranium Hexafluoride

I next time I am in Iran, I'll have to ask which material they use in their Uranium Hexafluride Esfahan Conversion Facility, when they process uranium yellow cake into uranium hexafloride (UF6), for shipment to Natanz for enrichment.
