LUMNITE® is a fused, low purity Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) typically used in refractory applications where service temperatures do not exceed 1350 °C (2500 °F). It also may be used in a variety of applications in construction, corrosion resistance and other industries. LUMNITE® is only available on the American market.
LUMNITE® is composed of calcium aluminate phases which have the following characteristics:
- High early strength
- High abrasion resistance
- Resistance to biogenic sulfuric acid corrosion
LUMNITE® has a shelf life of approximately six months if stored in a dry environment with small temperature variations. Other environments may shorten or extend the shelf life.
