Castolin Eutectic introduces on the American market a unique coating service for mold plates and tubes used in the continuous steel casting process. XuperCoat ceramic composite coating is designed to protect the copper molds against excessive wear from hot steel during the casting process, specifically high temperature abrasion, metal fatigue and friction.

Monitor Coatings, a surface engineering company in the Castolin Eutectic group, developed the high-performance ceramic composite coating technology in the UK. Recent developments in the application of the technology, the company says, now enable XuperCoat to be applied on all types of molds including bloom and billet tubes.

XuperCoat coating aims to enhance mold service life, cast product quality and reduce caster operating costs. According to the company, stainless and carbon steel longs and flats producers reported yield increases in cast steel on the same mold in the range of 2- to 8-fold compared to other solutions while maintaining the integrity of the original mold.

XuperCoat coated molds offer higher thermal conductivity, hardness and ductility as well as low friction and superior surface finish.

Eutectic Corp., headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, is part of the Castolin Eutectic Division of the MEC Group. Eutectic has manufacturing operations at two locations in Wisconsin, Menomonee Falls and Milwaukee.
