Thermax® application

Refractories

Thermax® carbon black can improve performance of monolithic, castable, carbon brick and basic carbon brick refractories. It can enhance resistance to thermal shock, heat, chemicals and active slag, increase refractory density, and improve in-situ carbide formation. Castables containing Thermax® require less water to reach normal casting flow, resulting in higher density and less porosity.
