Foundry Service and Supplies, Inc. and the Johns Manville, Industrial Insulation Group enter into an exclusive agreement.

Foundry Service and Supplies, Inc. and Johns Manville’s Industrial Insulation Group., are pleased to announce a global, exclusive agreement for the sales, marketing and distribution of Ultratemp-AL®, an ultra-low shrinkage, Xonotlite board for molten aluminum applications. Ultratemp-AL® board is noncombustible, asbestos-free and able to withstand continuous operating temperatures up to 1560° F (849° C). Made in the USA.

“We are very pleased to enter into this strategic collaboration with Johns Manville's Industrial
Insulation Group,” said Joel Leathers, Vice-President of Foundry Service and Supplies, Inc. “They are the leading provider of thermal insulation solutions for high-temperature industrial applications.”

Leathers explained that Ultratemp-AL® is an economical, low-density, Xonotlite board, specifically formulated for minimal shrinkage after heating. Since most failures in refractory boards are a result of cracks or checks caused by shrinkage, the low shrinkage of Ultratemp-AL makes it ideal for many molten aluminum contact applications. Many of those applications include: transition plates, caster tips, skim dams, launder sections, floats, spouts, and trough dams and components."

Foundry Service and Supplies is currently offering a try-before-you-buy free trial transition plate program. For details, please call Dave at 909.284.5000.
