Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC587

Introduction

Refractory is the material that retains its strength even at high temperatures. Refractory is used in making crucibles and moulds in order to cast the metals and glass. In addition, they are also used in surfacing the flame deflector systems that are used for rocket launch structures. The iron and steel industry holds a significant share in global refractory bricks market.

There are different sorts of refractory bricks accessible in the market today. They vary in their structure and specific heat handling limits. By picking the correct refractory brick, one can create a cost-effective, safe and less maintenance heating systems that conveys ideal performance. On the other hand, wrong decision of refractory bricks accompanies high downtimes, general equipment failures, and expanded work place accidents.
