Refractory/Fire Proofing Materials

Refractory/Fire Proofing Materials in Nairobi Kenya

What is a refractory?

A refractory material (refractory) is a heat-resistant material. It is a mineral that is resistant to decomposition by pressure, heat, or chemical attack. Refractories are commonly applied to a mineral that retains strength and form at high temperatures. Dandy Solutions LTD is the leading wholesale supplier of Refractory materials in Nairobi Kenya.
ASTM C71 defines refractories as “…non-metallic materials having those chemical and physical properties that make them applicable for structures, or as components of systems, that are exposed to environments above 1,000 °C
Refractory materials are commonly used in: furnaces, kilns, incinerators, and reactors, to make crucibles and moulds for casting glass and metals. About 70% of all refractories produced are consumed by the iron- and steel-industry and metal casting sectors indicating the key role they play in these particular industries.
Fire Proofing Materials

What is fire proofing?

Fire proofing is the act of rendering something resistant to fire. This is achieved by use of a refractory material which is defined as a material that has an unusually high melting point. Moreover it maintains its structural properties at very high temperatures. Ceramics are what principally compose refractory materials which have a wide range of uses in the following fields: glassmaking, metallurgical, and ceramics industries, where they are formed into a variety of shapes to line the interiors of furnaces, kilns, and other devices that process materials at high temperatures.
