Description: Alumina based abrasion resistant castable.
This is new technology, previous high abrasion resistant ceramics are based on high additions of silica fume. Keralcast has only 1% silica and can therefore be used at high temperatures, up to 1750ºC with virtually no molten phase present.
Density: 3.06 g/cm³
Max particle size: 5mm
Thermal conductivity: 2W/mK
Water addition: Extremely low: +4.5%
Mixing: 7 minutes in a bakery mixer or 20 minutes in a pan mixer. The consistency can be adjusted from putty to self-flowing, as preferred.
The setting time can be adjusted from half an hour to 6 hours, as preferred.
Testing: Try to grind it on a bench grinder.
Shelf life: 2 years.
Packaging: 25 kg plastic bags.
Project no. 1142
