Brokk’s ability to work in tight spaces and remain agile allows our team of professionals to make the most difficult projects look easy. Our clients often require demolition in places like kilns, vaults, dams, and the cleaning of ladles.

From insulating to dense products, our team is able to supply a full line of castable refractories and no cement castables using various bonding systems.

Gunnite / Shotcrete

Western Refractory has a world-class team of professional nozzle men who are second to none in the industry. Our many years of experience have allowed us to develop our skills, system, and processes to a level that minimizes waste and saves our clients time and money.

Plastics / Ram

When castables and brick are simply too complicated, or bulky and formwork is unavailable, refractory plastics are a great solution. Because of its excellent strength, high density, abrasion, slag, and spall resistance, refractory plastics can be used for a wide array of applications. The most common settings this is found are:

Coatings / Mortar

Refractory coatings have to be resistant to thermal shocks and high temperatures with melting points up to 1830 degrees Celsius.

Western Refractory’s team of professionals are able to provide coatings and mortar that fit the needs of our clients from being resistant to abrasion, gases, or slag attacks depending on the intended application.
