Premium Refractories at AISTech 2017
The latest innovations were presented by Steuler-KCH/DE at AISTech, a trade fair which was held in Nashville/US in May 2017. Amongst others, the highlights included a new generation of magnesia-carbon bricks with the purpose of further improving the manufacturing output and processes of its customers. In addition to this, the focus was on innovative bottom casting materials and formats that significantly improve safety during casting and the homogeneity of the resulting steel ingots.
