Fusion SL™ dipping, pouring and transfer ladles provide long life and thermal insulation for your metal pouring needs. Rex Materials has a family of fused silica materials. Ours was specifically developed for ladle applications. 

Ladles come with a special BN coating making them non-wetting to molten aluminum and other metals. Long life and thermal insulation are the key characteristics of Fusion SL ladles. 

Rex Materials has developed a standard line of robotic dipping ladles from 2 to 30 pounds and have custom designs with far greater capacities. Transfer ladles are available in aluminum capacities up to 4,000 lbs. Our engineering and tooling specialists can design and build a ladle to your exact specifications.

FUSIO2N (Fusion) represents a family of high purity fused silica materials tailored to achieve optimum properties required for molten metal applications. FUSIO2N (Fusion) products are precision cast into a wide variety of sizes and shapes, from small and intricate to extremely large, including shapes with complex internal features – typically without the need for costly machining.

FUSIO2N (Fusion) is made from fused silica that has been sintered to a high temperature. Today it is used in many non-ferrous applications, including but not limited to, tapblocks, trough liners, filter bowls, flue port blocks, pour basins, spouts, control pins, and dipping ladles. Rex Materials’ ability to supply quality shapes, cost effectively, enables you to use FUSIO2N (Fusion) parts in applications where ordinarily fused silica products have been too expensive.

Fusion SL ladles are made with a unique process allowing us to be very cost effective. FUSIO2N (Fusion) ladles are available in sizes up to 10,000 pounds for iron or 4,000 pounds for aluminum. Standard or custom designed ladles are available.
