To extend the life of copper moulds a plating is required to coat the inside wall. The quality of the coating of the inside wall has a most significant role in determining a moulds service life. Over the years we have developed different coatings and improved continuously the quality and cost-efficiency of our continuous casting moulds.
Depending on the requirements different coating processes and materials have to be applied, to receive an optimal result. Available coating materials are Ag, Ni, Cr, Mo, CrO, ZrO, Al2O3. The coating is applied in a chemical, electrolytic or thermal process.
Continuous casting moulds - Shapes
We manufacture continuous casting mold tubes in copper and other commonly used copper alloys (Recommended materials are Sidex®, Cupragan® and Cupratherm®) . All types of cross sections, internal tapers and shapes which can be manufactured in our own planting facility.
