The strength of
Mino Ceramics’ refractories
Mino Ceramics’ refractories are used mainly in cement and lime, but also in environmental plants, steel, non-ferrous metals, glass, chemicals, electrodes, electronic products, and many other industries. Through the manufacturing plants and manufacturers of our customers and suppliers, refractories are connected to familiar products such as smartphones and PCs, automobiles, food and beverage cans, and ceramics. Refractories are essential for these products, as they require heat treatment at high temperatures in the manufacturing process. Mino Ceramics provides refractories to help manufacturers and material suppliers create products that support our daily lives.
Iron and steel
Mino Ceramics Refractories
Based on the know-how accumulated over many years A wide variety of shaped products can be supplied
Shaped refractories are manufactured through the processes of kneading, molding, and firing. Strength is developed by firing, and handling on site is easy.
Clay and high-alumina bricks
A wide range of irregular shaped products are available according to the furnace environment and construction method.
Monolithic refractories are shipped with a pre-mixed refractory aggregate, suitable binders and additives. The best construction method can be selected according to the site conditions, such as pouring, spraying, patching, etc., by kneading with water or a specific kneading liquid on site.
