Our monolithic products feature excellent thermal shock resistance, good strength, and resistance to mechanical impact and molten metals.
Our refractory monolithics are available in three distinct varieties: insulating monolithics, dense monolithics, and special duty monolithics. Depending on composition, water content, and other factors, they can be cast, gunned, rammed, poured, plastered, and (in some compositions) pumped and shot-creted.
Insulating monolithics are lightweight and feature very low thermal conductivity, resulting in significant fuel savings, less need for support steelwork, and increased energy efficiency. These monolithics feature ease of installation, including easy flow characteristics and low gunite rebound loss for time and material savings. They are available in gunite versions and several can be installed by shot-creting or pumping.
Dense monolithics are engineered formulations designed to meet specific property requirements of industrial furnace operators. They are economical, have good strength throughout their temperature ranges, and are available in both dual-use cast/gun and special gunning formulations.
Special duty monolithics are designed for more critical applications. Specifically enhanced properties allow them to outperform conventional monolithics. These high-technology materials include low-cement gunning and casting refractories, no-cement monolithics, plastics for gunning and casting, and very high-alumina-content monolithics. Enhanced properties, such as extra high strength and resistance to chemical attack and abrasion, provide long service life with low maintenance.
