Exothermic Powder, Anti Piping Compound and Bottom Pouring Compound

Properties

METAMEXO is a range of highly exothermic powders and feeding aid. It improves the riser efficiency in steel and iron casting through direct heat output and yield of liquid metal.

METALUX is a range of anti piping compound. It is self spreadable in powder form for the topping up of riser and ladle.

METATHERM is a range of bottom pouring compound or teeming compound. It gives superior finish to the ingot surface and ensures defect free surface of ingot.

Application

METAMEXO  is added on the top of the riser sleeves to act as feeding aid. It provides exothermicity to the liquid metal and also insulates the casting preventing heat loss.

METALUX is added as a topping compound on the top of the riser at the time of the feeding liquid metal in the mould.

METATHERM is added at the bottom of the mould before pouring liquid metal in the mould and acts as a lubricating agent between ingot and mould ensuring a smooth finish.

Advantages

  • METAMEXO is designed to provide a minimum 35% yield of metal
  • METAMEXO is used to meet shortage of liquid metal in castings
  • Metalux  expands during its reaction with liquid metal to produce residue which provides outstanding
         thermal insulation.
  • Metalux is available in both expandable and non expandable form
  • Metatherm is manufactured from quality fly ash resulting in consistent quality
  • Metatherm can be customised as per user requirements of steel grades & ingot sizes.

Packing

METMEXO is available in customised sealed plastic bags of different weights. The plastic bags are further packed into 50 kgs plastic sacks for easy handling

METALUX is available in customised sealed plastic bags of different weights.. The plastic bags are further packed into 50 kgs plastic sacks for easy handling. It is also supplied with Metahot in its corrugated boxes.

METATHERM is packed in 40 kgs plastic sacks.

Metamexo is a Exothermic feeding aids based on alumino thermic reaction for ferrous castings. The metamexo is used to improve the riser efficiency in steel and iron casting through direct heat out put and yield of Liquid metal (Metal yield 35% Min.). This material is also used to meet out the shortage of Liquid Metal in castings. Metalux is range of Anti- piping compound self spreadable in powder form for the topping up the riser and ladle. Metalux are highly and medium sensitive exothermic Anti Piping Compound. Which expands during its reaction to produce a residue of outstanding Thermal insulaton. Available both in expandable and non expandable forms. >Metatherm is a range of flux to ensure the ingot casting free from surface defects and reoxidation of the metal. It also act as a lubricating compound between moulds & ingot surface, for smooth surface finish of ingot casting. It also improves the mould life.
