Carbon Bonded Working Linings

Benefits of Vesuvius solutions

  • Improved corrosion resistance
  • Cleaner steel
  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Energy savings
  • Potential to increase ladle capacity

Engineered materials

Supermag* range of standard and low carbon steel ladle products

Low-carbon material technology

  • Low carbon: reduces the potential for carbon pick-up in the steel melt
  • Low conductivity: offers lower heat transfer and energy losses from the ladle
  • Excellent slag resistance: comparable to high carbon containing products
  • Optimized structural flexibility: to maintain good resistance to thermo-mechanical cracking and spalling
