About Pyroform HP™

Wagstaff Table Top Refractory

The top metal casting companies in the world demand the best. So, it's no wonder why they choose Pyroform™, the leading refractory, for use in their metal delivery systems.

With years of proven performance, Pyroform PC™ is the only refractory material approved by Wagstaff for use in their billet casting systems. And now, new Pyroform HP™ - with its unique combination of thermal insulating properties and durability - is superior even to Pyroform PC.

We invite you to browse this site and find out why Pyroform HP™'s unsurpassed performance and low refractory cost per ton of metal cast make it the best value in the business!

Why Pyroform HP™

Wagstaff Table Top Refractory

There are many reasons why Pyroform HP™ is the only refractory material approved by Wagstaff for use on their billet tables. The following information explains why Pyroform HP™ has significant benefits when used in Metal Delivery Systems in addition to Wagstaff billet tables

Pyroform HP™ has significantly lower conductive heat losses compared to both fused silica and high density castable materials. Because Pyroform HP™ has an extremely low thermal mass, it also takes much less energy out of the metal at the start of the cast. Together, these properties can achieve the following:   more

With over twenty years of unmatched refractory performance in the Aluminum Industry, Pyroform is the only refractory material approved by Wagstaff for their billet casting systems. Developed exclusively for molten aluminum, this ceramic fiber based material is made by a proprietary process resulting in a "one of a kind" material with unparalleled high insulating properties and durability. The performance of Pyroform HP™ is further proven in case studies comparing Pyroform HP™ with fused silica and castables. Some of the stunning results are as follows:

  • Holding furnace temperatures lowered by 35°F (20°C)
  • Metal temperature drop reduced by 75°F (42°C)
  • Reduced energy cost by $10,000 per year
  • Elimination of preheating requirements
  • Faster turnaround on casting pans
  • Steel shell temperatures lowered by more than 100°F (55°C)
  • Improved safety and work environment
