FAQ

Are suitable mixes available for aluminum casting?

Specially developed mixes for aluminum melting, casting and transport. These recipes are optimized using high quality raw materials and specific anti-wetting systems to increase service life.

What is the best way to address issues with castable setting times in steel ladles? Should water content be adjusted?

The NORCAST® range has been designed to optimize setting time and mechanical resistance after drying, ensuring easier handling and reduced downtime. While it is not necessary to compensate with additional water, guidance on optimal added water ratios is available on product datasheets.
