Basic Monolithics or basic castables have chemistry of magnesia (MgO) caustic, sintered, or fused. Basic castable refractory products provide great resistance to basic slags most commonly found in basic steelmaking processes. Basic brick can also be found in glass, lime, and cement applications.
For more information, Resco Products created a combination of articles. Addressing magnesium the element and the production of magnesia refractory products.

Resco Product’s magnesia-chrome ramming mixes are highly resistant to basic slags. Basic refractory products provide high strength and excellent corrosion resistance throughout a wide variety of high-temperature applications. Our most well known basic monolithic is Permanente 165-AF with its nonchromatic bonding system and installation methods of vibration, casting, or ramming.
