FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE MOLTEN METAL APPLICATIONS
Ultratemp-AL® is a carbon fiber reinforced insulating refractory board specifically designed for molten metal applications. It is asbestos free and composed primarily of calcium silicate and reinforcing fibers. Components machined from Ultratemp-AL® are generally used for the movement, distribution, flow control, and casting of non-ferrous metals and their alloys. Ultratemp-AL® board exhibits excellent machinability exceptional uniformity, and dimensional stability prolonging it’s service life and minimizing costly replacement procedures. It’s high strength, low shrinkage, and non-wetting properties ensure that components are highly resistant to breakage during casting and subsequent cleaning operations.

Calcium Silicate Board Machined-Shapes.
Ultratemp-AL® is an economical low density calcium silicate board. The resultant product has minimal shrinkage after heating. Since most failures from these types of refractory boards are due to cracks (checks) developing as the result of thermal shrinkage, the low shrinkage of Ultratemp-AL® makes it an ideal candidate for many molten metal contact applications such as: Transition Plates, Caster Tips, Skim Dams, Trough Dams & Components, Launder Sections, Floats, Spouts
