KERUI produces high purity Calcium Aluminate Cements with 70,75 and 80% Al2O3 content by sintering process.
These products not only widely used throughout the refractory industry, but also in other areas such as building chemistry materials are in high demand.
High purity calcium aluminate cement CA70 contain only calcium aluminates.
The high calcium aluminate content provides characteristics ideally suited for refractory applications where rapid hardening combined with excellent mechanical resistance and high temperature performance are required. So they are widely recommended for high performance refractories such as low cement, ultra low cement castables.
The 70%alumina cements of KERUI are represented by three product types，CA70，CA70W and CA70S.
” CA70 and CA70W do not contain any additives and a -Al2O3. “
CA70 has moderate setting time and hardening properties, so it shows outstanding additives compatibility and tolerance to dosage rates in all types of deflocculated systems ensuring flexibility for optimized formulations. Its use is recommended for high performance refractories such as low cement, ultra low cement, self-flow castables and wet shotcrete products.And its rheological properties are well adapted for all types of placing methods, particularly for casting and gunning.
CA70W has short setting times and higher early strength, so it is suitable to be used in low temperature environment especially in wintertime and other urgent occasion such as rapid installation or emergency maintenance etc.
CA70S, a specially formulated calcium aluminate cement, has good fluidity and long workable time; the castables made by this product showing good working ability and excellent mechanical strength, and it suits very well to be applied in high temperature environments or hot summer time.
Notes: refractory cement = high alumina cement = Calcium aluminate cement
