We founded our new Furnace Technology Division in 2011. The reason behind the move
is our plan to increase our competence in the thermal processing of flat products.
This involves expanding our global know-how in equipment for heating and cooling
steel and non-ferrous metals. Following the collapse in demand in 2009 and 2010,
the first signs of recovery emerged in 2011. By developing new products, we aim

Amorphous Liquid Metal Coatings Technology
This paper describes a new technology of amorphous alloys that provides solutions
for very high temperature wear and scaling erossional problems, over the conventional
Hi Nickel alloys and heat resistant castings, high temperature, steel mill rolls
etc. The first stage is amorphous powder mixed with Zirconium Titanium induced into
chrome matrix using is a rapid quenching furnace creating the atomised powder to
break into micro particles of 1-3 microns by creating a very high kinetic energy.

Andalusite Applied to Refractory Castable
Andalusite has a higher refractoriness under load, a higher thermal shock resistance
and a higher resistance to creep than other silico-alumina materials such as bauxite,
chamotte etc. Andalusite is perfectly compatible with other silica-alumina materials,
alumina materials and SiC materials. As main and/or secondary components, andalusite
is largely used in refractory castable.
