Plastic Refractories: Highlighting Phosphate Bonds

TFL is a distributor of Plibrico refractory products and carries a wide selection of Plibrico phosphate-bonded refractories. Compared to other monolithic materials, chemically-setting phosphate-bonded refractories offer good refractoriness under load (RUL), volume stability, abrasion resistance, slag resistance, high hot strength, and most are non-wetting to aluminum. These products utilize a high mullite content aggregate in an alumina-fortified phosphate-bonding matrix that incorporates Plibrico Company’s proprietary monoaluminium phosphate.

Plibrico Phosphate-Bonded Refractories

Within the plastic refractory category, we offer a number of different phosphate-bonded products. This week, we’ll be highlighting a few popular materials from our Plibrico phosphate-bonded refractory selection. These chemically setting plastics offer long term performance for refractory linings in many industries.

  • Plibrico 68 S
  • Plibrico 68 SA
  • Plibrico 85 S Special
  • Plibrico 90 S
  • Plibrico SR-90

Plibrico 68 S

Plibrico 68 S is mullite-based, phosphate-bonded plastic refractory. Its service temperature limit of 3100°F and high hot strength make this material an effective selection for burner cones, boilers, and incinerator slagging areas. In addition, as Plibrico 68 S is non-wetting to aluminum, it works well in aluminum lower sidewalls, hearths, upper walls and roofs, troughs and lauders.

See the Plibrico 68 S technical data sheet for product details.

Plibrico 68 SA

Plibrico 68 SA is similar to Plibrico 68 S in chemical composition, but different in its improved aggregate sizing distribution. This improvement gives Plibrico 68 SA a smoother texture, improves ramming characteristics, and reduces slumping.

See the Plibrico 68 SA technical data sheet for product details.

Plibrico 85 S Special

Plibrico 85 S Special is a versatile, high-purity plastic refractory. It is non-wetting to aluminum alloys and has been designed to be chemical and abrasion-resistant. Plibrico 85-S Special is an excellent product for boilers, incinerators, wood-fired burners, and many other applications.

See the Plibrico 85 S Special technical data sheet for product details.

Plibrico 90-S

Plibrico 90 S is a 90% alumina, phosphate-bonded plastic refractory. This product is tailored to applications which require a high service temperature (3400°F service limit) and high material strengths, including burner cones, furnace hearths, slag areas, and sulfur recovery units.

See the Plibrico 90 S technical data sheet for product details.

Plibrico SR-90

Also, a 90% alumina, phosphate-bonded refractories, Plibrico SR-90 is manufactured with a soft plastic consistency and is designed for thin applications. Its fine grain size and high workability make Plibrico SR-90 ideal for patching and repairing existing linings.

See the Plibrico SR-90 technical data sheet for product details.
