Protection of Continuous Casting copper mould plates, furnace rolls and hearth rolls

The diversity of MoniPlex® and SealPlex® applications is truly demonstrated in the steel industry. In the protection of Continuous Casting copper mould plates in conjunction with Monitor Coating’s strategic partners, XuperCoat and CastSeal® are sold world-wide to steel manufacturers. Operators report the life expectancy of Moulds to have increased by a factor of up to x4 while at the same time reducing the risk of break-outs and sticker alarms. The use of MoniPlex® and SealPlex® in conjunction with thermal spray hard-face coatings for roll applications such as furnace rolls and hearth rolls on the CAPL (Continuous Annealing Process Line) offer significant life extension significantly reducing operating costs. Protection of processing equipment such as pinch and sink rolls for molten zinc and tin coating of continuous cast strip has seen a step-wise improvement in technology since the use of MoniPlex® and SealPlex® coatings.
