7th International Conference on Refractories in Jamshedpur, India

India, April 14th: Elkem Silicon Products will be present at the 7th International Conference on Refractories in Jamshedpur, India. The event, for which Elkem South Asia Pvt is a Silver Sponsor, will take place 6th-7th May 2022 in a hybrid fashion on both virtual and physical levels, with technological exhibits and lecture sessions. Our team will be on site to present the challenges of cracking of MgO based castables, as well as achieving extended self flow in a low cement castable using SioxX® flow. 

Elkem Silicon Products to present research papers 

The Elkem Silicon Products team will be sharing their knowledge and expertise on refractories by presenting research papers on some relevant topics in the field. Firstly, the challenges of cracking of MgO based castables will be introduced. The goal in this work is to better understand the impact of Elkem Microsilica® on MgO hydration behavior so that we may build crack-free MgO-SiO-H₂O bonded castables for industrial use. The second paper that will be presented will compare SioxX® Flow as an additive to frequently used dispersants in a bauxite-based low cement castable with optimum water addition. 

An excellent opportunity for networking 

The 7th International Conference on Refractories will be a unique opportunity to expand your network in the refractories field. People from all around the world will be able to debate, exchange, and learn about many aspects of refractories during ICRJ 2022.  The event also provides a forum for refractory producers and end users to communicate directly and identify areas where they may collaborate more effectively. Elkem Silicon Products is looking forward to seeing you there!
