SYNTHETIC MULLITE

Features

As various raw materials are fine-crushed and wet-blended, SYNTHETIC MULLITE has uniform structure.
As the raw materials containing only a few impurities are sintered at high temperature near its melting point (1850°C) in a rotary kiln, SYNTHETIC MULLITE has a dense, needle-like structure.
This product has the following advantageous chemical and physical properties:

  • High melting point
  • High weighted softening point
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • High rigidity
  • High resistance to corrosion against gas and slug

SINTERED ALUMINA

Features

Temporarily fired alumina is pressure-formed on a briquetting machine, dried, and sintered at high temperature near its melting point (2050°C) in a rotary kiln.
It is a polycrystalline sintered body of corundum having a dense internal structure. It is high-purity SINTERED ALUMINA containing 99.5% of Al2O3.
This product has the following advantageous chemical and physical properties:

  • High mechanical strength
  • High thermal conductivity
  • High resistance to thermal shock
  • High melting point
  • High electric insulation
  • High chemical stability
  • High resistance to wear

About us

Company details

"Precious resources" supporting every industry ---
In order to turn out stronger and finer resources, our forerunners have devoted themselves to their studies for many long years and achieved technical innovations in controlling "fire" and "heat" as marked in the history. Today, all resources are indispensable in diverse ways for your life. As a supplier of raw materials of refractories and various ceramics, Itochu Ceratech has been supporting the iron and steel making business and involved deeply in your life. We will keep meeting your needs with our time-honored certified technologies through our worldwide network and thereby pursuing the "provision of affluent life."

While environmental problems are getting social assignments, we are promoting our thorough energy-saving strategies.
We process exhaust gas from rotary kilns through a heat exchanger and reuse it as secondary air for combustion and heat source for drying. In addition, we are developing a waste heat recovery boiler for recovering radiant heat from kilns jointly with a boiler manufacturer. Thus, we are making continuous effort to achieve new measures.
