Molten Metals

Since 1979, Blasch has manufactured some of the highest performing materials available for use in the containment, control and refinement of molten metal. Our custom engineered designs provide innovative and effective solutions to the toughest challenges in the industry.

Die Casting

Die Casting is one of the most challenging processes for ceramics where materials see high thermal shock and long exposure to molten aluminum.  Blasch helps you meet that challenge by providing the best selection of non-wetting materials available for aluminum die casting applications including our Oxytron™, Nitron™ and Aluminum Titanate materials.  Utilizing these advanced materials, Blasch offers die casters designs and solutions that improve your casters uptime while reducing oxide formation.

Continuous Casting

The continuous casting process requires ceramic materials that must provide a long and predictable life in molten non-ferrous metals. Blasch materials like our Oxytron™, Nitron™, Fused Silica and Alumina materials exceed in these high thermal shock applications while also providing great non-wetting properties. Using our Blasch process for ceramic production, we produce products that provide the high tolerances and dimensional repeatability required in continuous casting operations to reduce downtime on your line. Nearly any shape and size of parts can be provided by Blasch.

Investment Casting

Poor or unpredictable crucible performance impacts production costs by limiting campaign length between crucible change-outs and contributing to contamination that causes scrap and rework.  Foundries count on premium quality Blasch ProCaster™ high alumina crucibles to perform the same each and every campaign, allowing them to extend campaigns and reduce downstream quality issues resulting in lower scrap and rework costs.  ProCaster high alumina crucibles are used to replace expensive zirconia crucibles with equivalent or improved performance.  With crucible sizes from 5 to 5,000 pounds, Blasch has a crucible and material for your requirement.
