Thermal insulating materials for steelworks can be divided into three groups: 1. insulation coverings, 2. cast stream protection coverings, 3. exothermic insulating agents. They are based on highly refractory ¬fillers, fibers and binders. Insulation coverings are pre-formed highly refractory models for thermal insulation of heads in classic ingot mold casting in shapes of segmented coverings,
We are producer of refractory coatings which are applied to sand moulds and cores in foundries (steel castings, grey cast iron, ductile iron and non-ferrous metals). We prepared simple infographic of our products.
The benefits of the use of exothermic insulating materials during ingot casting process are presented on the animation below. Different insulating products were applied at the top of the mold during teeming and solidification. MAGMASOFT® casting simulation software was used to show the difference between uninsulated (left side of the animation) and insolated mold (right
