KEY PROPERTIES

  • Refractoriness under load at 0,5% compression increase by approximately 30°C compared to standard andalusite
  • Creep in compression rate at 1500°C shows a greatly decrease of value
  • High thermal shock resistance

TEST RESULTS

High chemical and mineral purity improving subtantially refractory thermo-mechanical performances,
for instance on andalusite based bricks:

*Refractoriness under load & creep in compression at 1500°C on bricks according to European standards EN 993-8 and EN 993-9
