Specialties: SioxX® and SioxX-Quick®
Based on 40 years of expertize in microsilica and castable technology, Elkem has developed two new specialities for advanced unshaped refractories; SioxX® and SioxX-Quick®.
SioxX-Quick® accelerator is used for undispersed systems such as gunning mixes. By adding SioxX-Quick® to the system, low and ultra-low cement gunning mixes can be designed, which will have controlled set-time and increased refractoriness.
SioxX-Quick® is also used in dispersed systems, where it acts as a set-controlling agent in microsilica-containing castables, to decrease working and de-moulding times.
SioxX® dispersant is mainly designed for the microsilica-containing low-cement and ultra-low cement castables. It enhances the rheological properties, reduces the water demand and increases the flow.
A synergistic effect of SioxX® and SioxX-Quick® results in even better flow properties, mainly in ULCC systems.
Specifications are available under the product data sheets section.
