Different Types of Monolithic Castable Refractories
Monolithic castable refractories, painstakingly developed by Resco's team of engineers, are products that deliver exactly what they promise. Greater dependability. Longer application life. Easier installation. Lower energy costs. Lower maintenance cost. Reduced downtime. Greater productivity. And that's just the beginning. At Resco, we are constantly engineering even better refractories that do more, do it better, and do it at a lower cost.
Resco's Premium Castable - Rescobond AA-22S
The castable which sets the standards for performance, ease of application, and long life throughout its full range of applications is Resco's premium, abrasion/erosion-resistant castable, Rescobond AA-22S. Particularly effective in thin, metal-anchored, and metal-reinforced linings, Rescobond AA-22S offers all the benefits of air setting. Because it readily bonds to other refractory surfaces it is ideal as a quick and easy patch -- a permanent patch -- for worn linings.
The Rescobond, family of castables are easy-to-mix castables that adhere permanently to all refractory surfaces with heat curing. This line of specialty products offers exceptional physical properties for all applications and can be used for patching or for a full lining.
Our low-cement, no cement, and ultra-low cement castables offer the widest range of applications and extended service life. These castables are grain-sized to give minimum porosity and linear change with maximum density and high fired strength. This gives improved physical properties compared to similar castables and to conventional castables. Our advanced technology products in this category include vibration-only mixes, self-flow castables, shotcrete products, and products that are all three. Brand names include Vibrocast, Kricon, EZ Cast, EZ Cube, and Sureflow.
Extreme Service Castable
Extreme Service Castables are a complete line of specialty castables blended for specific application and performance needs. Formulations are available for hydrogen and/or carbon monoxide-rich reducing atmospheres, for low thermal conductivity and high resistance to thermal shock spalling, for critical wear areas in high-erosion applications, for exceptional erosion resistance, and wherever higher strength and greater insulation properties are required.
Our extensive and on-going R&D efforts have resulted in an unparalleled selection of specialty insulating castables. These products range in density from 25 to 95 pounds per cubic foot and are well suited for use in difficult application areas including reducing atmospheres. Most can be installed by gunning, casting, hand-packing, troweling or pump-casting without the need to order special formulations
