Kalcret hard compound, a cement-bonded wear protection for system components and pipes, features a reduced mixing time of approximately 5 min, is easier to handle, offers a faster installation time and can be easily applied overhead. Kalcret is made of a hard aggregate material, cement binder and micro- and nano-silica. The hard aggregate provides the high quality wear protection, while the micro- and nano-silica fill the pores between cement portions. Suitable for temperatures to 2,192°F, the compound reaches high strength and wear resistance after 8 hr, and is suitable for a broad range of abrasive products, including coal, cement, ore, sand and other hard, granular materials. Available as a trowelled, cast or sprayed-on compound, it is designed to provide a continuous lining for system components with horizontal, vertical, inclined, curved, flat and large surfaces.
