Refractory Formed Shapes

Used to cast aluminium, ferrous and other metals, our vacuum-formed refractory shapes are created for high temperature applications, ensuring they are durable enough to be in continuous contact with molten metal. Our products are suitable for industrial applications like nonferrous riser sleeves and cups. Custom shapes in various hardness grades are available upon request and custom cutting or machining are also options.

Used to collect samples of molten metal to test quality and alloy content.

  • Light weight
  • No preheating is necessary
  • Low temperature losses
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Inert material
  • High melting point
  • Custom designs available

Formed shape products are made by moulding or by vacuum-forming fibres. The products fulfil a wide range of uses.

  • High temperature
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Resistance to thermal shock
  • Light
  • Erosion resistant
  • Low shrinkage

We can manufacture any shape or size of ceramic, dependant upon volume and delivery restrictions.

Our high purity (Al2O3 content > 99%) ceramics have a wide range of high temperature applications. Using high content alumina, with thermal shock resistance, our products operate at temperatures of 1750°C, making them ideal for the foundry environment. On sintering, high purity alumina produces a dense, single-phase ceramic with a small controlled amount of closed porosity.
