Successful market launch of tap hole clay for the blast furnace

Created by INTOCAST Iron & Coke |

INTOCAST Iron & Coke GmbH established as new supplier for tap hole clays

At INTOCAST’s Oberhausen works, INTOCAST Iron & Coke produces its extruded tap hole clay for the blast furnace.  Innovative environmentally friendly tap hole clays based on oil and resin are produced economically.

The new automatic packaging line provides for optimum packaging and handling of the shrink-wrapped blocks, resulting in an improved shelf life of the delivered clays. Ongoing Research and Development guarantee materials that are optimized for the individual blast furnace performance.  INTOCAST Iron & Coke does only rely on its own experience.  The INTOCAST Group has successfully produced, developed and marketed approx. 11,000 tons of tap hole clays per year in South Africa since the end of 2003.

After a successful market launch in Germany, the INTOCAST Group is now actively expanding its marketing of tap hole clay worldwide.
