Ceramic and Glass
Ceramics and Glass Overview
Extremely high temperatures are required to create the glass and ceramics products we use every day. The refractories in glass tanks are in constant contact with the molten glass, which poses different kinds of requirements for the high temperature refractory for use of ceramic and glass. Since glass in the molten state is quite fluid and tends to go through the refractory pores, the most important requirement is nonporous refractories. Fused refractories are used in the molten glass and contact areas to address this issue. The insulation for the machinery and equipment for this process require specialized refractory products in the manufacturing process - FibreCast’s expertise spans multiple manufacturing processes for the high temperature refractory ceramic and glass industry.
The thermal ceramics glass industry is driven by increased demand for global production in tandem with transformation and distribution. Growth in the Thermal Ceramics Glass sector is expected to be driven by higher margin tableware and reinforced glass products. Escalating costs in transportation have placed constraints on the ability to transport flat and container glass over fast distances resulting in localized production and manufacturing.
