Hybrid: Optimized Sol-Gel Technology.

    Hybrid technology permits the combination of faster heating up and high strength at low temperatures. It is therefore ideally suited for applications in which high strengths are required in the range of 20 - 1000 °C; for example in the production of prefabricated components or the lining of fluidized bed furnaces and refuse incineration plants.
    Advantages of hybrid castables compared with conventional cement containing castables:
    • Faster heating up with shorter downtimes

    • Cost and energy-saving

    • Very good adherence on existing refractory materials

    • Installation possible on hot surfaces and with high ambient temperatures

    • Higher application temperature limits

    • Optimized thermomechanical behaviour

    • Long storage life of 12 months

    • Increased cold crushing strength and modulus of rupture as well as optimized abrasion resistance in the temperature range below 1000 °C.
