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.
