Met-Ex - Parting Agent and Protective Coating

Parting Agent and Protective Coating for the Non-Ferrous and Light Alloy Industry

The attack by molten metal on refractory and metal components plus the build-up of solidified metal and Dross, which have to be removed, contribute to shortened working life, contamination of the melt, and increased costs. Therefore we at Delphorge 83 are pleased to both recommend and supply MET-EX to aleviate these problems.

A compound of finely divided refractory oxides provide a protective layer which both inhibits metal attack and provides a non-stick interface. Being water based, it does not prompt atmospheric pollution or present a health hazard.

MET-EX is available in the following 3 sizes:
40kg, 18kg, and 7kg
