Monolithics

Our New range of Monolithics

The Höganäs range

The Höganäs product range consists of four product families. Depending on your requirements, these products can be installed through vibration, self-flowing gunning, pumping and shotcreting.

 

Höganäs Conventional

  • Robust range of products for customers with a wide range of applications
  • Less sensitive to climatic variations (setting time) and application mistakes (water addition)
  • Easy to mix and install
  • Multipurpose mixes; castable, pourable, and gunnable
  • Longer shelf life

Höganäs Ultra Low Cement

  • Premium products based on the latest surfactant and bonding matrix technology
  • Even distribution of binder even at low level
  • Superior high-temperature properties including higher hot strengths due to less CaO in the matrix
  • Less reactive with a variety of melts and slags at elevated temperatures

Höganäs Low Cement

  • Well-designed, homogenous mixes with improved mechanical and thermo-mechanical properties
  • High quality and consistency
  • Very short wetting and mixing time, less risk of adding excessive water during applications
  • Multipurpose mix technology for casting, self-flowing, rodding, pumping and shotcreting

Höganäs No Cement

  • Designed with nano-bond technology
  • Fast setting and rapid heat-up due to excellent permeability, leading to shorter drying time
  • Superior mechanical and thermo-mechanical properties due to cement-free nature

Gunnables

All conventional refractory castables are also available as gunnables.

LCC castables can be gunned, if special equipment is employed. Please contact your Höganäs Bjuf representative for more information.

Some castable products are also available as moldables. These wet blocks can be rammed with pneumatic hammers to conduct local repairs without the need of a casting mold. Again, please contact your Höganäs Bjuf representative for more information.

Mortar and Cement

Cement or mortar is used to join bricks. Cements harden at room temperature, while mortars normally require a temperature of at least 300 degrees before they are properly cured.
