Fused Cast Refractory is a high density material obtained by melting a mixture of the purest oxides and casting them into molds to create the required shapes. Fused Cast Refractory blocks are preferred by the glass industry mainly because they offer good glass corrosion resistance at high temperature with minimal glass defects. A Sintered Refractory is medium and high density material obtained by a mixture of the pure oxides which is vibro-cast (or) pressed into the molds to create required shapes. These products are dried and fired at high temperature to get required properties. The product ranges produced in SEPR India mainly include Fused Cast AZS, Fused Cast Alumina, and white bonded products for the glass industry.
