We have one of the widest networks of experienced field sales representatives and application specialists to service your cement kilns and total refractory needs. At our Advanced Technology and Research Center, we’re studying how changes in process and material composition are adversely affecting refractory service life in pyro-processes. We’re delivering new ideas to optimize refractory products and installations to address today’s changing line fuels.

We have equipment rental services and a full range of inventory solutions. We can also provide priority access to our Advanced Research and Technology Center testing services. Our role can be customized to your needs. We can step in as simply a refractory product supplier, or we can take the job all the way through installation.You decide.
