WAM® 45 SC – Standard Cement Castable

WAM® 45 SC is a general purpose standard cement containing castable.  It is composed primarily of fired flint clay aggregate. This allows the material to be suitable for use up to 2600oF. It is available in a coarse version which increases the material abrasion and impact resistance. Standard cement castable systems contain a relatively high level of cement (typically 15-20%), as such they are very forgiving in that they permit a broad range of water without negatively affecting properties, are less susceptible to temperature variations relative to set and working times and are very easy to place with typical vibration methods. Because the cement content is relatively high, they are typically not suitable for higher temperature applications. This, in combination with the flint clay aggregate gives WAM® 45 SC the lowest maximum temperature limit of the standard cement castables. However; it is also the most economical.


WAM® 45 SC finds application in several areas as a general thermal protection material. This includes floors around hot metal processing areas, catch dams and troughs used as safety barriers, ash hopper linings, and thermal resistant mechanical support structures in load bearing applications.
