What are monolithic refractories? What are refractories? HOW PLIBRICO NAME CAME?

Monolithic refractories come in powdery or clay-like form. Powdery refractories are mixed with water at the job site and poured into formwork or gunned with a gunning machine to construct refractory linings. Clay-like refractories are formed into furnace walls by compacting with a hammer or a pneumatic rammer. Monolithic refractories are characterized by much easier construction of complicated shape refractory linings than firebricks.

Refractories are used in various facilities and equipment to protect from fire and heat. It can be categorized broadly into shaped refractories (firebricks) and unshaped (monolithic) refractories. Sixty percent of the current refractory production is occupied by monolithic refractories in Japan.

The name PLIBRICO was taken from PLIABLE FIREBRICK COMPANY. The word PLIABLE, meaning adaptable or flexible, is the characteristic of our company's primary product, "monolithic refractories".
