Materials along the steel value chainSaint-Gobain Ceramic Materials is the expertise in steel industy, it offers a varienty of innovative materials solutions to meet customer needs along the steel value chain, including refractories, foundry, abrasives etc.
Non-ferrous alloys such as Aluminum, Copper, or magnesium, as well as super alloys of Nickel, Cobalt, precious metals or magnetic materials, all require variety of refractory components during melting, processing, and forming. In many of these applications, inert nature of BN and high oxidation resistance offers desired solutions at melt temperatures. As consumables, parts made with BN and composite materials offer precise production and long part life leading to reduced replacement frequency. Including break rings for horizontal continuous casting, nozzles for powder metal atomization and side dams for thin strip casting
