Product Information: Plicast®️ Al-Shield™️ GHC 8 C KK is the coarse aggregate version of Plicast Al-Shield GHC 8 KK. This low cement aluminum resistant castable, pairs a super coarse bauxite aggregate with a high purity matrix, and then adds a high temperature aluminum resistant additive system to provide excellent aluminum reaction/wetting resistance. It maintains the same great aluminum resistant and physical characteristics you see in Plibrico Al-Shield products, but uses a coarse aggregate to further enhance impact and crack resistance. Plicast Al-Shield GHC 8 C KK product advantages include:

  • Excellent aluminum reaction/wetting resistance to 2000°F
  • High hot strength
  • Excellent hot fracture and impact resistance
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Improved thermal cycling resistance
  • Plicast Al-Shield GHC 8 C KK has excellent installation characteristics and may be vibration cast, cast or pumped.
  • Available Internationally As: Plico®️ Castable A-S GHC 8 C KK

  4. Jambs
  5. Flues

Product Information: Plicast® Al-Shield™ 55 M KK is a 57% alumina, mullite based, low cement castable that incorporates a high temperature aluminum resistant additive system. As an aluminum resistant castable, this product was developed to solve structural applications issues in aluminum furnace areas which may be exposed to aluminum splashing and corundum growth, such as upper sidewalls and roofs. Typically, in these types of applications, to maintain elevated temperature strength and shock resistance, standard low cement castables are used. However, in some cases due to corundum penetration and expansion, Plicast Al-Shield 55 M KK is the better solution since it resists corundum attack and maintains hot strength. Summarized benefits include:

  • Good aluminum reaction/wetting and corundum resistance to 2000°F
  • Higher hot MOR from 1500°F to 2300°F as compared to other aluminum contact castables
  • Good hot load resistance
  • Excellent hot fracture resistance
  • Improved thermal cycling resistance
  • Can be installed by casting or pumping
