III. PRODUCTS FOR THE LADLE

1. Refractory materials

 

REFCAST LC 85 & REFCAST 80 TRF
A series of castable and repairing refractory cement, high alumina based.

 

PRECAST REFRACTORY SHAPES
Ready to use for runners, spouts etc.

 

REFCOTE
Zircon based refractory coating for the top lining of the furnace, runners, spouts and other refractory surfaces to enhance refractoriness.

 


2. Ladle fluxes

 

ANTISLAG
A flux that keeps the ladle refractory lining clean and free of oxides and slags.

 

PERLAX
Coagulant and slag removal flux.

 

Desulphurising agents (DESULFAT)
Flux for the desulphurization of the molten metal. Added to the bottom of the ladle before the tapping for partial removal of sulphur from the metal. (may reduce sulphur from 0,20-0,15% level to as low as 0,10%)

 

Inoculants (traders)
For the improvement of the metal structure and its mechanical properties (especially the machinability).
