A slag covering and Ladle/ Tundish Insulating compound
Product In Brief
DA FEX-II a silica based insulating compound, acidic in nature, is specially formulated for use as a Tundish insulating cover in conventional casting
DA FEX-II. an extremely efficient insulator, medium exothermic which covers the entire metal surface in the Tundish. It prevents heat losses in the metal and reduces skulling near nozzles and ladle. Immediately after the addition it Spreads on the metal surface and dry throughout the pour. Ladle dumps out clean metal with no metal adhering to the refractory lining. It is specially recommended for supersilica boards.
There is no need to superheat metal prior to handling thus extending furnace and ladle refractory life while contributing to overall operating efficiency and improved metallurgical properties.
Recommended use of this compound is 2-25 kgs. per ton of molten metal or 15 kgs. per meter square, depending on the size of ingots.
It is packed in 10 kgs. HDPE woven sacks, which is ideal for throwing over the metal in ladle or tundish.
