Calcium Aluminate Cements...

Almatis produces high purity Calcium Aluminate Cements with 70 and 80 % Al2O3 content. The products are widely used throughout the refractory industry, but also in other areas such as the construction industry. The 70 % alumina cements are represented by two product types, CA-14 and CA-270. In the refractory industry they find their use especially in low and ultra-low cement, low moisture castables with gunning, vibration or self-flowing placement. CA-14 is a well established product line. Our process enables us to produce CA-14 cement with three distinct setting time ranges, which provide the opportunity to develop products with consistent and predictable properties. CA-270 is a product (2nd generation of 70 % alumina cements) characterized by very low water demand, excellent flowability, and high strength development. Almatis 70 % alumina cements do not contain any organic additives in order to give full flexibility in product design without any potential chemical mismatches. Our 80 % alumina cements are represented by CA-25 R (Regular Grade), CA-25 M (Medium Grade) and CA-25 C (Casting Grade). They are used in the refractory industry in conventional and low cement castables, which require fast setting, high early strength development, and good strength at intermediate temperatures. Our process enables us to produce CA-25 cement with three distinct setting time ranges, which provide the opportunity to develop products with consistent and predictable properties. CA-25 C has a lower water demand when compared to CA-25 M and CA-25 R. The Almatis cement production process is designed to achieve maximum consistency. We have the ability to precisely control the cement setting times by tight control of the cement phases. The Almatis Production System (APS) allows us to give better service by dramatically decreasing our response time and improving production flexibility....

Cement Tests & Cement Quality...

Almatis Calcium Aluminate Cements are tested to reflect customer's needs. Consistency in setting, flow, strength, particle size distribution, and chemical composition are all essential for good cement performance. The Almatis cement testing procedures of flow, set, and strength are as nearly as possible based on the European Norm EN-196 parts 1, 2, 3 and 6. The Normsand based grog was modified to a grog based on Tabular Alu...
