Challenge: What are the benefits of reactive alumina and how do I select the appropriate reactive alumina to upgrade refractory performance?
Solution: Reactive aluminas are key components and performance enhancers for modern refractory formulations, both castables and bricks. They have a major impact on water demand and rheological properties of castables and on the strength, porosity, and slag and wear resistance of the refractories.
Brussels, 22 March 2017 - World crude steel production for the 67 countries reporting to the World Steel Association (worldsteel) was 126.6 million tonnes (Mt) in February 2017, a 4.1% increase compared to February 2016. It should be noted that there were 29 days in February 2016.
The 4th Almatis Technical Seminar on Refractories for south Zhejiang provinces was held in Changxin, Zhejiang. Over 80 participants from near 50 companies enjoyed the informative presentations made by Almatis' Asia Pacific Commercial and Technical managers, along with Almatis' regional distributor and the Changxin Refractory Association secretary.
The Almatis high temperature sintering process pre-reacts Bonite to provide a stable aggregate volume with no new phases forming during refractory heat-up.
