Hi! Does someone have any experience with the Thermbond Refractory (by Stellar)? The application concerns primary aluminum casthouse.

We want to rebuilt a furnace door frame  with this product. It is supposed to bond chemically with the existing refractory and not cause lamination like a patch.  

RE: Thermbond

We have used the material quite a few times with very few problems to repair refractory in our NOX Thermal Reduction Unit that has a lot thermal gradients across short distances. We have used it from a thick patch to a wash coat to replace kaolin.

The only real problems has been when the applicator didn't follow the installation instructions.

Have you ever looked at these materials as wash coats for your Al process?
