around 28 million t of refractory materials are produced. At Ceramitec the exhibitors in the refractories section are displaying not only a wide range of innovations and new technologies, but also solutions for state-of-the-art processes in ceramics, for example, refractory linings, lightweight refractory bricks and fibre materials for kiln systems, kiln furniture in an energy-efficient design, burner nozzles and various protection systems.
Imerys will be showcasing a new generation of cassettes for firing roof tiles. Another theme are high-temperature protection systems for walls and pipes in kiln rooms.
Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials will also be addressing this theme with the material silicon carbide in lots of different variations. In the ceramics section one focal point are intelligent kiln cars and systems.
High temperatures and resistance to temperature change for a wide product spectrum of formed and unformed refractory products and high-temperature wool are the highlights at the stand of Rath AG.
