Operating temperature

First of all, it is necessary to determine what kind of working temperature environment the refractory castable will be used for. Different castables are suitable for different temperature ranges, ensuring that the selected castables can maintain stability and durability at the expected working temperature.

Chemical composition

The chemical composition of a refractory castable directly affects its performance and durability. According to the application requirements, select the appropriate chemical composition, such as oxides, nitrides, carbides, etc., to ensure that the castable can effectively resist corrosion and wear under specific conditions.

Physical properties of high-temperature castable

Consider physical properties such as density, thermal conductivity, and thermal expansion coefficient of castables to ensure that they can work in harmony with other materials in actual use and avoid problems caused by mismatching physical properties.

Wear and Corrosion Resistance

According to the actual use, choose refractory castables with sufficient wear resistance and corrosion resistance, especially in high-temperature and corrosive environments.
