Refractory Materials

Postby Joe Pfeifer » Tue Jul 15, 2014 1:00 am

Does anyone know if "Spinel" ramming refractory material would be useful as a component in making your own investment for lost wax casting, or for bead release, or for any other "glass" use?:
Al2O3 89%
SiO2 0.5%
MgO 10%

I have a whole bunch available...

It is a dry ramming material manufactured specifically for use in the installation of pre-formed alumina crucibles and ladles for the steel industry.

The folks at Craftweb would surely know more about the product than here. If nothing else, Pete has a lot of crucible knowledge.
