WAM® 97 WFS – 97% Alumina Based Wire Fiber Slurry

WAM® 97 WFS is a multiple purpose high temperature/low reactivity slurry mix used to cast high wire fiber containing precast shapes. Tabular alumina is the base aggregate for this material. This allows the slurry itself to be suitable for use up to 3300oF.


WAM® 97 WFS is designed to be self flowing at minimal water content. Under vibration, flow increases and de-airing is easily accomplished. WAM® 97 WFS is used to fabricate shapes for a variety of applications within the steel and aluminum industries.
