Iron and Steel
Iron and Steel Overview
The iron and steel industry is constantly in transition, and companies that thrive in it understand the need to evolve and adapt. Today, the iron and steel sector makes up over 60% of all refractory business. From coke ovens to blast furnaces, refractories play a critical role in the steel manufacturing process. FibreCast’s expertise spans the entire process of manufacturing iron and steel to leverage the full potential of our refractories.
Today, the iron and steel industry faces many challenges in manufacturing due to the properties of molten metals. Molten metals are easily capable of badly disrupting the manufacturing process while acting as a source of danger for workers. FibreCast is proud of our proven track record in developing and deploying solutions that effectively address these challenges through the use of specialized insulation for metalworking applications.
We also understand that these refractories must evolve and adapt to address multiple manufacturing processes and environments. For example, refractories in the bottom of a blast furnace need to be specialized for the high temperatures of molten metals, whereas refractories near the top need to withstand high levels of abrasion and mechanical shock.
