Aluminium Titanate for Foundry Applications
ALTITE is a ceramic material suited for non-ferrous metal foundries. Some examples of usual applications are riser tubes, dosing tubes, break rings, stalk tubes, fill tubes, stoppers for flow control of molten masses, insulating rings and sprue bushes.
As an oxide ceramic ALTITE presents a unique combination of thermal properties and resistances against corrosion and molten metal non wetting properties: excellent thermal shock resistance, very low thermal expansion, good chemical resistance and no or little wetting by non-ferrous melts.
Different shapes are available for ALTITE. Custom made production is possible upon request.
