UNITECR 2015: Appetite for low impurity steel drives demand for high-performance refractory linings
Published: Wednesday, 16 September 2015
Despite a challenging steel market, new business opportunities exist for high purity alumina products used in the steelmaking process, as companies are becoming increasingly concerned with efficiency and cost savings. Additional steel technology movements and the extended processing of liquid steel are also creating new pockets of demand with the need to continually improve refractory technology.
New commercial opportunities exist for producers of high
purity alumina (HPA) products due to the growth of secondary
metallurgy performed in steel ladles, delegates at the 14th
Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories
(UNITECR) in Vienna, Austria, heard today.
Speaking at the event today, Almatis’ global
technical director of refractories,...
