Grind-Chem manufactures covering compounds used in ladle and tundish. Our covering compounds are highly insulating powder, which has very good expandability and spreadability, so that it expands and spreads instantly to cover entire molten steel surface in the ladle and tundish....more
Covering compound can be acidic, basic or neutral in nature depending on the refractory linings used, casting conditions and grades of the steel cast.
These covering compounds being highly insulating in nature significantly reduces heat loss due to radiation from the top surface of liquid steel. This results in maintaining
consistent temperature in the ladle and tundish and also prevents temperature drop and freezing of metal in longer duration casting.
These covering compounds also prevent molten steel to get exposed to atmosphere to prevent oxidation thus producing better quality steel.
