We stock and supply a range of refractory plastics to suit a wide variety of applications.
Refractory plastics are very suitable to use when no formwork is available or when brick or castables are too difficult or too awkward to use. Plastic refractory is generally placed with the use of a bricklayers hammer or a pneumatic hammer. The material is built up until the rough size and shape is acheived. The work is then trimmed to size and shape with the face left rough. The rough face helps assists with the easy removal of moisture. The work is then ready for venting and either left for some time to air harden of fired shortly after placement to remove moisture. Firing cures the plastic to give it its hardness and density.
Use of products such as the Phosphate bonded 85P allows for quick turnaround as the product can be dried shortly after placement reducing downtime and lost production
Applications include boiler work, ladle linings, forge furnaces, tundish linings, burner blocks, aluminium furnaces, furnace hearths, spouts and patches.
