Carath® LC low-cement concretes

Dense fired concrete with reduced cement content

 

The range of low-cement concretes (Low Cement, LC) consists of a wide variety of materials and therefore covers the widest range of applications. All of the grades are designed for high structural density and achieve a high level of strength and abrasion resistance. The Carth LC range of fired concretes can be made into concrete moldings and delivered either unfired, tempered or pre-fired. The resulting products have favorable application properties similar to densely fired bricks. 
Special grades from the Carath LC series are specially designed for contact with molten aluminum or are used in heavily loaded shuttle kilns and furnace walls because of their high thermal shock resistance and strength.
