Low cement castable

According to the standard EN 1402-1, Low Cement Castable designates a family of castables for which the lime (CaO) content varies from 1% to 2.5%.

Low Cement Castable (LCC) belongs to the deflocculated castable category.

Kerneos manufactures and sells SECAR® 71, SECAR® 712, SECAR Plenium®, SECAR Xeniom™ and CMA 72 in the Low Cement Castable application.

The selection of refractory cement is done according to the targeted service temperature. Please click on:

Low Cement Castable can be applied by vibration casting, dry gunning, self-flow or shotcrete.
