Non-ferrous metal casting

SILCA is specialized in different applications of non-ferrous metal casting. As a manufacturer of calcium silicates for the fields of electrolysis, low-pressure casting, gravity casting, chill casting, melt transport etc. we produce innovative and performance improving products exactly according to your demand.

In our CALCAST® product range you will find a suitable material for any application, CALCAST® CC60 with its pseudoplastic fracture behaviour due to the integrated carbon fibres, CALCAST® CC100-CC150, which is excellently suited for the production of nozzles, floaters, bushes as well as transition plates and CALCAST® CC 350 for the manufacture of feeder boxes with highest demands. In case an extremely high thermal shock resistance is required CALCAST® CC500 will be the first choice. The CALCAST® product group is completed by CALCAST® CC155 G4/G8/G16. Thanks to the combination of calcium silicate and graphite these materials have an increased thermal conductivity adjusted to your requirements.
