Secondary Aluminum

Aluminum - Secondary Production

As the secondary aluminum industry continues to grow Resco understands the importance of high-quality refractory products. Secondary aluminum, also known as recycled aluminum, is already 92% more energy-efficient than primary aluminum. Resco products assist companies in increasing heats and campaigns by improving melting furnaces efficiencies with a durable and resistant product. Additional metals and compounds are often added during the process to achieve the best mixture.

Refractory Material for Melting and Holding Furnaces

The process of aluminum melting can be taxing on the furnace lining. The right refractory linings take into consideration thermal insulation, corrosion resistance, thermal shock, and more. Resco's wide range of brick and castable refractory products will provide the necessary properties needed for your furnace. Our full portfolio is designed for severe conditions at extremely high temperatures.

Contact Resco Products to find the right castable refractory for your application.

MightyFiber SIL2-HCA-25 is part of a family of composite products consisting of a blend of oxidation resistant stainless steel fibres combined with a fine grained castable matrix. This combination allows Pre-cast elements to be produced which exhibit extreme Thermal Shock, Impact and Erosion resistance combined with super high strengths. Manufacture does not use the established infiltration method; instead a mixing technique is employed which allows a coarser and much stronger matrix to be used than previously possible. This product can only be supplied in the form of pre-cast shapes.

Low Cement Castable

Quikturn 45PCAArrow icon

QUIKTURN 45 PCA is a aluminum-resistant, low cement, 45% alumina castable, that can be installed by vibration cast, pumping, and shotcreting methods. This castable is formulated for aluminum resistance but is intended, primarily, for backup linings. After the final set, this unique castable can be heated without the traditional ramp-and-hold heatup schedule. Refer to the recommended QUIKTURN heatup schedule for initial heatup.
