Is it possible to quickly and easily install a castable while maintaining product performance and service life?
The NORFLOW® range of self-flowing castables can be installed without the use of vibration tools or other vibration assistance. Compared to conventional castables, NORFLOW® offers excellent strength, homogeneity and erosion resistance while maintaining lower water content during casting.
Many melt shops operate with a single ladle - how quickly can a ladle be brought back into service following relining with refractory?
The NORFAST® product range has been specifically designed to address this issue. NORFAST® employs a special bonding system which enables quicker drying and sintering, ideal for rapidly bringing equipment back into service without impacting overall service life.
