Is a composite cast iron material that is both tough and tolerant of mild mechanical abuse. The material allows the walls and base of the auto pour ladle to be manufactured with much thinner sections than usually associated with refractory parts. Robot mounting positions can be respected and engineered to suit most customer requirements. The material is hard wearing and very insulating in comparison to many materials often used in this application. With a material density of 100 lb/ft3 (1600 kg/m³), it offers exceptional strength to density ratios. The RFM Auto Pour Ladle comes complete with a factory prepared finish of ladle coating. This coating offers exceptional non-wetting characteristics to enhance the in-use.
