Cer-Met, Inc. is a distributor of all
types of brick used in the refractory industry.
Often used in high temperature applications, firebrick can be used as a
lining or as a backup to monolithic refractories. Throughout the refractory industry there are
several types of brick which fall under four main classes. The four main
classes of brick can be classified as Basic, Fireclay, High Alumina and Silica. Insulating Firebrick (IFB) are lightweight, high temperature brick with excellent thermal shock resistance properties.
Monolithic Refractories are used to form joint-free linings in new installations and repairs. Their advantages include quick installation with reduced downtimes, good insulating properties and lower permeability. We stock monolithic of all types with a focus on durability and can help select the best product for your specific needs.
Cer-Met, Inc. stocks and supplies the two general classes of mortars used in the refractory industry. Air-setting (wet and dry) and Heat-setting (wet and dry) are used with refractory brick to fill in joints and create a bond between brick. All Cer-Met, Inc. wet setting mortars come in 60 lbs pails while our dry-setting mortars come packaged in poly lined bags. Within the two classes of mortars there are 3 types: Fireclay, High-Alumina, Basic Mortars.
