MONALITE M1 A
MONALITE M1 A is a calcium silicate of high density, its density is 970 kg/m3.
Specially developed for contact with light non-ferrous metals, it does not pollute aluminum and its alloys, resists well to thermal shocks, is not wetted by liquid metals, remains dimensionally stable up to 1000° C.
It is also compatible with foundry poteyages containing graphite and boron nitride.
MONALITE M1 A does not develop corundum.
Easily machinable, this calcium silicate is particularly suitable for the production of precision machined parts such as ingot mould rings (hot top), dams, floats, nozzles, feeder sleeves, spouts, pins... for continuous casting systems, non-ferrous metal die casting.
The thermal and mechanical characteristics of MONALITE M1 A also make it suitable for glass processing, various heat treatment applications and thermal bridge breakage ( SANPON flanges).
