Kast O Lite equivalent/ where to find in Europe

Recommended Posts

I've been looking for Kast-O-Lite 30 on the internet. So far i haven't found a supplier that is not located in the US. Is there an equivalent to Kast-O-Lite 30 that can been found in Europe?

So I found this refractory cement. Would this be good as a forge liner? 

Nevermind, its only rated to 1300 degrees celsius.

A lot of the suppliers don't ship to Belgium. The ones that do are between a 100 to 200 dollars shipping cost.

See if you can get your hands on some Perlite; a common soil ingredient. If you can, it can be stirred into alumina based refractory; it isn't as elegant a solution as glass micro-bubbles, but it does a similar job, and should be in your reach.

Glass micro bubbles are made for light weight concrete, mortar, etc. and should be available at: mason, sand and gravel, or concrete batch plants. The telephone is your friend. ;)

You might see if you can locate this refractory. It is from India. It is working very well for me as both hard face in forge and for the multi-port burner that I use. 

Whytheat-K is 60% alumina hydraulic bonding refractory Dense Castable, which is use for service temperature of 2912°F (1600°C).

Thanks for the reply! I called up Morgan Ceramics a couple weeks ago and they sent me to a local supplier that makes custom refractory's. They sold me a bag of Arelcrete LC17T and some Durablanket Z. The Arelcrete is a refractory from the UK. It is a bit denser than Kast-O-Lite but its good enough since I only used it for a small liner layer. I uploaded a data sheet for it.
