HERITAGE RAILWAYS

The main product of use in this area is Refractory Castable Grade 1400, sometimes referred to as 'Refractory Concrete' which is used instead of shaped firebricks inside the firebox of steam locomotives. The material is supplied in 25 kg bag and is a ready formulated dry material which just requires mixing with water.

This is usually cast in situ using a wooden former as shown above.

The other product is a luting compound called Vitcas Premium 1P which is used when casting white metal bearings to preserve oilways etc. This material is specially formulated to withstand the heat but to be easily removable afterwards.
