Cerox® fired refractory shapes are now available in a range of material compositions, including many specifically used for the manufacture of rotating and non-rotating airplane components and automotive turbochargers. Dense, hard and chemically stable, the shapes offer resistance to chemical attack from acids, slags, and gases to produce the cleaner, contaminant-free metal desired by end users in aerospace and automotive steel foundries.
Fired shapes manufactured from Sillimanite Cerox 200 are composed of 74% alumina and fired mullite, which are known for their chemical attack resistance, good thermal shock, and excellent non-wetting characteristics at temperatures as high as 2,850°F. The shapes are fired to temperatures that can create especially strong molecular bonds, making them superior in applications required to produce clean and contaminant-free metals. Combined with precisely controlled firing and 100% product inspection, the components can reportedly be used for the most demanding of high-temperature environments.
