Our Vocation.

Almost all materials used by the human being are subjected to several processes during manufacture where there are temperatures between approximately 800° C and over 2000° C in furnaces.

Metals are melted from ores and glass is made by melting sand, lime and further raw materials. Cement is made by a firing process. The same applies for ceramics whether making a tile or a porcelain cup.

Further examples include the chemical industry, power plants and incinerators for the thermal treatment of waste. All of the furnaces are built with materials that can resist extremely high temperatures. It would simply not be possible to make many products without refractory materials.

Consequently, refractories is hardly known to the public. Nonetheless, it is a big column of any modern industry. Refractory materials are ceramic materials. This means they are nonmetallic, inorganic materials which are manufactured as bricks or so-called mixes (castables).

Expertise and many years of experience are required to develop and make the right product for a specific application.

But having the right material is not all that is required. The refractory lining must be designed, installed correctly and commissioned. There are only a few companies with the expertise to accomplish all of this in a competent manner.

For over 75 years we have responded to the call to do all of this the right way.
