Metal Asia November 2012 Issue

A Complete Metal Magazine

SPECIAL COVERAGE

AMC® – Advanced Mould Coatings
Copper materials have a relatively low hardness and thus low resistance to abrasive wear. For this reason, a high degree of wear can occur in the lower part of the mould where the strand shell causes increased levels of stress. To improve the service life of moulds, KME has developed advanced mould coatings.

COMMENT

COMPANY NEWS

Furnace Technology

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 to increase our share of the market volume in 2012.

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.

METAL APPLICATION

Sandwich Tundish Cover Magnesium Treatment Process and Practical Tips

In this article, more stress is given on the background of the Magnesium Treatment in case of particularly most widely adopted process i.e. Sandwich Process with Tundish Cover Treatment Ladle.

REFRACTORY

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.
