Welcome back to FibreCast! I’ll be giving you today a short introduction on monolithic refractories and why they’re so popular today. First off, let’s talk about the difference between monolithic and traditional refractories. You see, monolithic refractories are unshaped, and they’re a type of suspension, a little like cement. They’re applied, and then harden into the shape that you need. Traditional refractories are pre-shaped. They’re fired and moulded before being used.
There’s a major advantage for monolithic refractories: they’re versatile. You can apply the suspension to any space and be sure of good insulation. Traditional bricks and other refractories are much less versatile. If they don’t fit well, you’ll be losing a lot of heat energy because of bad insulation.
FibreCast has some of the industry’s best monolithic refractories out there, so if you’re looking for high-grade monolithics that are flexible, versatile, and durable, we’re your top pick!
