Engineering Materials

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 are formulated using castor oil derived corrosion inhibitors. Some of our key suppliers 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 fiber bonding applications where operating temperatures reach 1200 degrees with little shrinkage ad good resistance to thermal shock.
