Refractories in Times of COVID-19
The continuous production of refractories is critical for the effectiveness and efficiency of the global industry’s supply chain.
Given the intensive processes that occur in the manufacture of refractories, it is of absolute importance to continue taking comprehensive steps within manufacturing facilities, such as respecting the recommended social distancing at refractory plants and optimizing the already high standards of industrial hygiene and safety, and personal protection equipment.
By following the COVID-19 related measures, we help to minimize risk, while still producing and delivering the refractory products that are vital to the world’s essential infrastructures.
