KALCRET hard compound a family of cement bonded wear protection materials. These are based on inorganic materials of high strength and good wear resistance.
The specific density is attained by a well balanced particle size distribution of the individual components. The pores between the cement portions are filled by the addition of superfine particles of micro silica.
KALCRET reaches high compressive strength after 8 hours. It is excellently suited for repairs. The mixture includes defined additives and is made up of:
A specific portion of steel fibers is added to enhance the structural strength. The type of steel fibers used depends on the thermal, chemical and corrosive stress to which the wear protection will be exposed. Expansion joints will be provided when KALCRET is used at higher temperatures.
Concerning its chemical resistance KALCRET
is more stable than regular concrete. However, KALCRET
can not be used as acid protection. Watch the video.
Ideal for material combinations - KALCRET is also fit for combination with other materials from the Kalenborn Abresist wear protection program, such as with
trowelling, casting in molds, or spraying.
Application temperature: up to 1200°C / 2192°F depending on material,
application and geometry.
Advantages: highly wear resistant, strong and jointless lining,
highly temperature resistant.
