MINTOP is a fine insulating powder for ladle covering. It is highly insulating in nature & has low density. Being Al2O3 base it is neutral in nature. This material is expanding type which spreads readily on the top surface of liquid steel in the ladle & minimises heat loss due to radiation. Mintop is specially formulated for use as a covering compound for Ladles used for Secondary steel treatment such as LF/VD/VAD etc. The material is refractory base & has low Silica & Fe2O3 content. High insulating properties help in reducing the skull formation, improves yield and ladle turnaround time.
