Vitcas supplies an array of zircon-based products including protective coatings, refractory castables, and ram and repair renders.
Characteristics of Zircon
Zircon is known to possess the exceptionally useful property of being non-wetting by molten metal and being non-stick for fluxes. Zircon also has a high melting point, a very low thermal expansion and good resistance to abrasion.
Vitcas sells zircon-based materials such as Zircon Paint Coating which gives a protective coating to ceramic fibre linings, Zircon Patch which is used for repairs to silica, alumina and zircon refractories and Zircon Ram for linings in glass tanks and furnaces.
