RESOURCED MATERIALS

Minchem HMP Ltd is able to source many types of raw materials, from all over the world, for a wide variety of products, for our clients. 

Due to our technical expertise and our knowledge of this sector we have been able to build up strong working relationships to ensure all materials sourced meet customer requirements

Below are just a few of the products we been able to provide. Please contact us if you have any specific requirement and we will do our best to find you supplies at reasonable costs.

 

Nepheline Syanite

Nepheline Syanite is a naturally occurring, silica deficient sodium-potassium alumina silicate. The higher total alumina and alkali contribution available from nepheline syanite produces ceramic ware with greater impact and flexible strength and improved resistance to the stresses of thermal extremes and mechanical shock.

Uses:   Ceramic wear and body compositions which mature at low temperatures.

Molochite

Molochite is a hard abrasion resistant alumino silicate, with excellent resistance to thermal shock properties

Uses:   Production of ceramic and investment casting shells for hot metal casting.

Tabular Alumina

Tabular Alumina is used in unshaped and shaped high performance refractories, used in a variety of industries, steel, foundry, cement, glass, petrochemical, ceramic and waste incineration. Other common non-refractory applications include its use in kiln furniture and for metal filtration. It is a well-sintered, crystalline alpha alumina, known for its dense properties.

Fluorspar – Acid Grade (dried powder)
 

Fluorspar is the commercial name for the mineral Florite, (calcium Fluoride, CaF2), which, when pure, consists of 51.1% Calcium and 48.9% Fluorine. Commercial fluorspar is graded according to quality and specification into acid-grade, metallurgical grade and ceramic grade.

Uses:   As a flux in steelmaking to reduce slag viscosity, ceramic grade is used in the       glass and ceramic industries and welding rod coatings. Aluminium        production. Hydrofluoric Acid production for a wide range of organic and     inorganic fluorine-bearing chemicals, and for anti fouling marine paints.
 
Cobalt Aluminate
 
High purity material, fused in the production process
 

Uses:   Investment casting facecoats, glass and ceramic colourants and pigments

 
Corhart ZAC
 

A reclaimed recycled material which can be a substitute for zircon in some refractory products

Basalt Tiles

High wear resistance and low cost makes them ideal liners for iron, steel and coal industry chutes, hoppers and silos.
 
Alumina Tiles
 

This is a high density ceramic alumina tile, with very high hardness making it highly abrasion resistant in the most difficult and critical operating conditions. It also shows an excellent chemical resistance to acids, to chemical agents in general and to oxidation.

Uses: Suitable to line all equipment or industrial plant requiring protection from corrosion and abrasion, such as: ducts, chutes, conveyors, feeders, silos, hoppers, cyclones, straight pipes and elbows.
