We supply a vast range of foundry ceramics including: Ceramic Bars, Tubes, Fittings, Bleeder Plugs, Extruded Rods, Ingates and Ladle Nozzles.
As well as our standard range of products we can also manufacture products to meet your bespoke requirements
ICS Ceramic fittings are single piece units of the highest quality designed for erosion and spall resistance. Ceramic fittings are available in standard elbow, tee and cross geometries as well as custom configurations.
ICS Melt Out Plugs are designed to fill shell voids created by venting. We have several different designs available including bleeder plug, cone and vent pin.
ICS supplies custom ceramic bars and rods manufactured from proprietary ceramic compositions for investment casters who prefer to ensure the structural integrity of the wax assembly or shell system.
Our ceramic tubes are manufactured from materials that are white in appearance and free of iron sulphide. We offer standard sizes in lengths up to 304 mm, anything larger than this is available upon request.
Our casting ingates are designed to reduce erosion on the surfaces of cores and moulds by allowing the metal to calmly feed into the mould, reducing turbulence.
Our extruded ceramic rods are available in several geometries. All rods can be either solid or hollow and outer diameters can be precision ground to tolerances of +/- 0.02mm.
Our strainer cores are manufactured from high grade Mullite material and due to their thermal properties can be used for Steel, Grey Iron and Ductile Iron.
Our ceramic cover plates are designed to cover the investment mould during the preheat process to avoid contamination issues.
Our nozzles are specifically designed and for bottom pour ladles as well as automatic pouring furnaces, they demonstrate thermal shock resistance, excellent mechanical strength, and a very high density.
