Ontario CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2015
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.
