RefClay Products

Ready-to-use, water-based, refractory claylike materials can be press molded to form shapes and then dried/sintered to yield high-density parts. Three of these refractory clays are offered – RefClay Y (based on Yttrium Oxide and usable to 1400 C); RefClay Z (based on...

CeraCast Powders

These dry refractory powder blends, CeraCast Powders, can be made into castable mixtures by merely adding water and allow one to easily make their own specialty refractories by merely pouring into silicone molds, drying, and firing. Three CeraCast Powders are offered...

ZRP with Near-Zero CTE

Materials with near-zero thermal expansion [NZTE] have been of interest to researchers and industry for decades since NZTE allows enhanced thermal shock resistance. RefClay ZRP and 3D Cer-Paste ZRP products allow easy production of NZTE parts of most any shape or...

Pyrrhos coatings

Pyrrhos (standard), BN Pyrrhos, Pyrrhos Binder This new coating group utilizes silicone along with a unique binder/suspender system that enables superior performance from room temperature to over 800 C in all atmospheres and for all substrates. Pyrrhos coatings here...

Unique Refractory Foam-in-Place

Cera Foam® Our water-based, paintable coating with “chemical direct foaming” expands to 2.5 times its size to form adherent, porous, black foam when first heated up to 700 C. Cera Foam provides highly porous thermal insulation as well as sealing/filling holes and gaps...

Aluminum Laser Welding

Korean researchers have demonstrated that our Titanium Nitride coating onto aluminum before laser welding produced great benefits, including much better laser absorption without cracking. Nam, S.; Jung, I.-H.; Kim, Y.-M. Effect of TiN Spray Coating on Cracking...
