AS6 joins our current range of both Ceramic and refractory materials

Fused Sillimanite – AS6

Anderman Industrial Ceramics is pleased to announce the addition of a new material to its extensive product range. The material grade AS6 is a high performance sillimanite refractory for use in a range of industrial application but specifically in the melting and transfer during super alloy component production in the aerospace and power generation industries. The material is also suitable for applications with specialist steel manufacture.

Material Specification
AS6 is a fused sillimanite refractory body comprising of 56% alumina (Al2O3 ) and 40% silica (SiO2) . The refractory product has a bulk density of 2.28 g/cm3 with typical porosity of 20%.

AS6 is manufactured by a specialist and proprietary production process resulting in smooth surface finish and consistent grain structure. These properties combined with its high alumina content enable the material to operate in conditions of high temperature up to 1650oC.
A good surface finish and the ability to operate at high temperature make this material particularly suitable in the field of molten metal transfer and handling where good thermal shock is required combined with minimal flow and abrasion resistance against the metal during transfer. Typical products include tundishes, distribution boxes and launder systems.
Anderman Industrial ceramics also offers a wide range of crucibles for molten metal handling.
Other applications for this material have included crucibles and sample test holders.

Product Capacity
