High Alumina Brick Alkali and Creep Resistant

The alkali and creep resistant KRIAL brick are high purity, low alkali products based on high purity aluminas, calcined bauxitic kaolins, and high-grade andalusite. Designed originally for use in blast furnaces and blast furnace stoves due to their low creep rate and carbon monoxide resistance, several of these products have also flourished in other markets including glass furnace regenerators and carbon anode baking furnaces. All of the brands listed in this category give an “A” rating in the ASTM carbon monoxide (CO) disintegration test
