We provide an extensive range of products for use in the Engineering Materials Sector
Our temperature-resistant materials for use in refractory & foundry applications include colloidal silica for fibre bonding, heat stable pigments, muscovite micas & phlogopite mica extenders. Lubrication oils & greases can be formulated using castor oil-derived corrosion inhibitors. Some of our key suppliers for these materials include Imerys, Lanxess and Nouryon.
Where are these products used?
Within the Engineering Materials industry our products are used in several environments where high temperature and engineering obstacles must be carefully considered. Our inorganic pigments, under the Colortherm brand, have heightened heat stability making them an excellent choice for high temperature applications. Our colloidal silica is used as a high temperature binder for refractory fibre bonding applications where operating temperatures reach 1200 degrees with little shrinkage and good resistance to thermal shock. For more information on our products, you can use our Advanced Product Search to discover more about which materials can be used with particular applications in the industry.
