Insulating materials and products

Our products

Product category: Insulating materials and products

Extrusion Glasses

Extrusion glasses are used in the forming of stainless steel billet into seamless tubes and profiles. Different glass formulations are used to protects the metal both during preheat and the extrusion process.

The manufacturing methods used to produce these types of products demand an exacting specification from the types of glasses used.

Tight control of the chemical and physical properties of these glasses, which is monitored and maintained throughout the glass manufacturing process, gives our customers the confidence and quality they demand.

Black Refractory Coatings

Today's modern steel manufacturing methods, using the continuous casting process, demands both high quality and high specification black refractory products to handle the molten steel during its processing.

To help protect these refractories during the pre-heat and the casting operations, James Kent has developed a range of special coatings and glazes.

Allied with this are coatings and glazes that provide for the protection of black refractory crucibles used during the more traditional methods of alloy smelting.
