Steel and Steelmaking
Steel is one of the most prevalent manufacturing materials on earth. Within the four overarching steel categories–alloy steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, and tool steel–there are over 3,500 distinct grades, each with fundamentally different thermodynamic and chemical properties. These subsequently serve a near limitless range of applications. The steel-making industry is, therefore, a major driver of economic growth; making optimal steelmaking processes invaluable.
At Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories, we offer high-performance solutions designed to enhance critical key performance indicators across the full steel making chain. We are committed to the sustainable development of industry-leading refractory products which add multifaceted value to steelworks around the world. This is central to a proactive roadmap toward profitable, low-carbon steel making.
Furnace Solutions: BOF, EAF & More
Producing greener steel is an ongoing objective for steel making companies worldwide, and that initiative typically begins by optimizing blast furnaces. We produce a suite of precision furnace solutions designed for high corrosion and oxidation resistance at extreme temperatures. Our basic oxygen furnace (BOF) linings outstrip any competition in terms of their long-term performance. With immense thermomechanical and corrosion resistance, our linings eliminate the need for patching with monolithics. Where a conventional lining may last ten months, our MgO-C linings are indefinite, meaning there is no need to cease production for repairs. The operational potential of basic oxygen processes can subsequently be maximized for best efficiency.
Alongside our basic oxygen steelmaking solutions, we offer a range of bricks and mixes for electric arc furnaces (EAF). Use the tabs below to find out more about our products.
Iron & Steel Ladles
Ladle are essential vessel that must support lots of different process for steel refining. The future challenges towards a greener world for sure goes through linings solutions can promotes energy saving and minimize eventual losses. Our carbon-free working lining for metal line and ultra-low carbon for slag line for steel ladle products provides energy saving reducing the molten steel temperature drop along the refining. We also offer a patented yield-enhancing solution that remarkable reduces the need for costly steel reprocessing. The solutions drive process efficiency and yields significant energy savings.
