RATH offers advanced refractory solutions for the glass industry

International refractories manufacturer RATH believes that high-quality refractory materials are the basis for superior production and crystal-clear results in all areas of glass manufacture.

From its eight production sites in Europe and America the company produces a wide range of glass melting crucibles as well as day furnaces in a variety of compositions, shapes and sizes. RATH’s portfolio includes standard compositions, sizes and shapes, and customer-specific requests are also available on request.

Products include:

  • Fomlac (344): a fortified mullite formulation and glass contact refractory, suitable for melting soda lime flint glasses in either batch or cullet form.
  • LC-833 (333): a premium AZS composition designed as a melting medium for a wide range of corrosive glasses, especially those containing high levels of metallic oxide.
  • Fusillac 100P (357/458): a fused-silica formulation with thermal shock resistance characteristics that dissipate upon repetitive thermal cycling through the 2000°F (1093°C) range. Its purity enables the melting of technical grade glasses without destructive contamination.
  • 211-XFS (381): a clay flux material for the manufacture of pots. Suitable for glass control refractory and continuous service applications. Crucibles made from the material are shipped unfired and it is the responsibility of the user to fire them into service.
