REFCON® is a fused, intermediate purity Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) typically used in refractory applications up to 1540 °C (2800 °F) where reducing conditions may also be present. REFCON® is also chosen for certain applications where its light color or other properties give it superior performance. REFCON® is only available on the American market.
REFCON® is composed of calcium aluminate phases which have the following characteristics:
- High early strength
- High abrasion resistance
- Resistance to biogenic sulfuric acid corrosion
REFCON® 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.
