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.

Changxin Customer Seminar

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.


Technical Papers


At this years Refractories Conference in Aachen Almatis gave a technical presentation on Bonite and Bonite LD are synthetic high refractory sintered aggregates. Their major mineral phase is calcium hexaluminate, CA6.

The Almatis high temperature sintering process pre-reacts Bonite to provide a stable aggregate volume with no new phases forming during refractory heat-up.
