Yuan Lei tells you what role silicon powder plays in refractory castable


refractory castableChina-Canada silicon micropowder is to supplement the tiny pores and improve the strength performance of the castable through the precise particle size distribution of the ultrafine powder.


The strength of the refractory castable comes from the high alumina cement, and the CaO in the high alumina cement is up5%~8%. It will reduce the strength of refractory castable at medium temperature. If the amount of low melt is large at high temperature, it will also decrease.refractory castableHigh temperature performance; CaO in high alumina cement will produce hydration, the amount of water used will also increase after hydration, and more water will lead to loose castable structure. If ultra-fine powder is added, the amount of cement in the castable can be reduced to 6%, so that the CaO and water consumption in the high alumina cement can be reduced, thereby improving the strength of the castable. This is the importance of silica powder in refractory castables.


Silica powder is refractoryCastableEssential raw materials. The addition of silicon powder to the castable will increase the flow value of the castable. Silicon powder particle size is small, is a spherical particle, extremely easy to enter the castable tiny gap, so the addition of silicon powder has a good water reduction effect, but also can improve the fire resistanceCastableThe degree of density, reduce the porosity, so that the strength of the refractory castable is better.


Refractory effect after adding microsilicaCastableThe compressive strength also changes significantly at different temperatures. The initial strength is 110 ℃, the medium temperature strength is 1100 ℃, dueSiO2The relationship between the fineness activity of micropowder and refractory castablesCaOThe fluxing effect of other impurity components will produce a strong ceramic bond. When the high temperature strength is 1450 ℃, silica powder and alumina powder will form mullite at high temperature. Makesrefractory castableThe pores are reduced and the high temperature strength is better.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Performance Requirements and Types of Fillers for Coatings


Fillers in coatings are usually white or slightly colored pigments with a refractive index less than 1.7. It has the basic physical and chemical properties of pigments used in coatings, but due to its refractive index being similar to the film-forming material, it is transparent in coatings and does not have the coloring and covering power of coloring pigments. It is an indispensable pigment in coatings.

In architectural coatings, commonly used mineral materials include barium sulfate, calcium carbonate, kaolin, mica powder, talc powder, quartz powder, silica micro powder, transparent powder, glass powder, wollastonite powder, etc. Reasonable application of various mineral materials can effectively improve or enhance the performance of coatings. Let's take a look at the application of different mineral materials in coatings.

Yuan Lei's Little Knowledge | Characteristics of Mineral Materials


Mineral materials refer to the material products obtained by processing and transforming natural minerals (mainly non-metallic minerals) or rocks as the main raw materials, or minerals or rocks that can be directly used as materials and aim to utilize their main physical and chemical properties. This meaning mainly includes the following four aspects: first, natural minerals and rocks that can be directly utilized or processed to be utilized; Secondly, finished or semi-finished materials made mainly from natural non-metallic minerals and rocks through physical and chemical reactions; Thirdly, artificially synthesized minerals or rocks; Fourthly, the direct utilization targets of these materials are mainly their own physical or chemical properties, not limited to individual chemical elements.
