The metallurgy industry demands materials that deliver consistent results in extreme conditions. Our range of minerals and technical expertise combine to provide solutions for customers across three sectors: foundry, steel and refractories.
To avoid variations and scrapped castings, it’s important to use the right type and quality of sand for core and mould making. The right choice of sand should be determined by parameters such as a casting’s size, casting temperature, the type of metal in the casting and the production equipment used.
The broad range of materials in our foundry portfolio enables us to meet customers’ precise requirements, from chemical composition to grain size distribution. Products include:
- Foundry sands (silica)
- Olivine sands
- Mineral composites: Finmix
Steel & refractory
High temperature environments demand materials with exceptional refractory properties. Our portfolio of materials for steel and refractory includes:
- Steel & refractory products: Oliflux, Casiflux (olivine, wollastonite), manganese, sodium- & potassium feldspar
- Refractory masses: Finmix, Thermtech, Fincoat
- Welding materials: Bauxite, Manganese, sodium- & potassium feldspar
- Silica sands
