ALKON® CAST NB 84 QD™ - CALDERYS SOLUTION

 

 

The Calderys Quick Dry solution for Aluminium Contact

For many years, the aluminium industry has recognized the advantages of using monolithic linings but the need has existed for a material with reduced dryout requirements to maximize furnace availability. With the recent development of Calderys QD™ (Quick Dry) Technology, such a material is now available.

ALKON® CAST NB 84 QD™ is an 84% alumina, no-cement, high strength, aluminium resistant castable which:

  • Requires no curing time
  • Allows water to evaporate up to 50% faster than products relying on cementitious bonding systems
  • Brings significant reduction in vapor pressure development during dry-out and heating-up (lower by a factor of 3 vs. typical low cement castables)
  • Features high mechanical strengths – higher than many cement-bonded products
  • Exhibits excellent aluminium corrosion resistance – as good or better than cement-bonded products

The unique advantages of ALKON® CAST NB 84 QD™ are being utilized worldwide, in Japan, Austria, Turkey, and now in the foundry of a leading automotive manufacturer in Germany.

ALKON® CAST NB 84 QD™ is designed to be used in aluminium contact areas like ramps, sills, lower walls, and hearths in a variety of applications including: melting and holding reverbs, shaft melters, rotary furnaces, and top charged melters. It will also find use in ladles, runners, and other ancillary aluminium handling systems.

ALKON® CAST NB 84 QD has been selected and used by Aluminium market and technology leaders in Japan, Germany, China and Turkey since the beginning of 2011.
