Refractory Products for Aluminum

Plibrico is a major supplier of monolithic refractory materials for the aluminum industry. We were the first to introduce a complete line of non-wetting aluminum contact castable refractories. Our Al-Tuff® series of non-wetting refractory materials were designed specifically to provide an effective and economical solution for aluminum applications. The Al-Tuff series features products that are modified with a non-wetting additive for aluminum contact. The modified surface increases wetting resistance and reduces the potential for oxidation reduction.

Plibrico also offers Al-Shield castable refractories and gun mixes designed and engineered specifically for high-temperature and aggressive aluminum alloys and contact areas. Al-Shield aluminum-resistant refractories contain aluminum-resistant additives that create a barrier – the additive compound reacts with aluminum to form a dense barrier layer. Our Al-Shield refractories provide longer service life that results in less downtime.

To complement our Al-Tuff and Al-Shield series of aluminum contact materials, Plibrico also has phosphate-bonded castables, gun mixes and plastic materials suitable for metal contact and all other areas in an aluminum furnace. Plibrico’s Exo-Set UNO series of castables and gun mixes are single component, “just add water” phosphate-bonded mixes for quick, easy and safe installation.
