The major benefits of Metpump products are listed as follows:

  • Zero cement, and Zero chemically bonded water.
  • Excellent resistance to alkali attack and corundum growth.
  • Outstanding strength at operating temperatures.
  • High resistance to thermal shock.
  • Excellent volume stability and thermal cycling (extremely low thermal expansion).
  • Low porosity to resist metal and slag penetration (extremely non-wetting).
  • Fast and easy installations at typical install rates of 6-10 tons per hour, depending on repair type.
  • Multiple placement method options: Pumping, shotcreting, or casting (“SC” finer-grain product versions are recommended for shotcrete repairs, and see only 3-5% rebound).
  • Fast, easy and safe dry-outs (typically 16-48 hrs depending on maximum thickness).
