Beams and Profiles

Our Beams and Profiles are load-bearing constructional elements for mass- optimized kiln car superstructures, which are used as kiln furniture for the firing of ceramics (i.e. in the market segments Sanitary, Electro-Porcelain and Architectural Ceramics). The RBSiC grades CarSIK and Eco-Light – which will be used in Sanitary application – exhibit up to 40% higher bending strengths-respectively higher Creep Resistance- compared to commercially available competitor products in particular due to the superior combination of high bulk density combined with very low content of free Si. The superior microstructure of our Eco-Light grade allows the use of smaller beam cross-section (≤30x30mm), resulting in reduction of thermal mass and thus leads to significant energy cost savings.

For elevated temperatures within the range > 1.380°C ≤ 1.470°C we can offer our superior grade CarSIK-NG (silicon nitride-bonded silicon carbide)

You benefit from these advantages:

  • Available grades: RBSiC (CarSIK-Z, CarSIK-G,Eco-Light), NSiC (CarSIK-NG)
  • Excellent Bending Strengths and Creep Resistance
  • Outstanding Oxidation- and Corrosion Resistance
  • Very good Thermal Sock Resistance
  • Low Thermal Mass (positive impact on energy consumption)
  • Unique package of Product-Related Services for Eco-Light grade (i.e. Economic Efficiency Calculation, Technical Support, integrated pro-rated 5-year Product-Warranty according to our commercial conditions, expandable up to 10years upon request)
