Durability and Advantages of Refractory Cement
Durability is an essential feature for a cement. It is essential for a cement to fulfill the condition of being durable. For this criteria, refractory cement is a suitable thing in many places where normal cement cannot act well.
Refractory Cement is specifically designed to be:
- Able to withstand the highest of temperatures.
- Used in areas of intense heat and fire (because of using asbestos as primary ingredients).
Asbestos: Asbestos is a fire retardant material found in a large type of deposits. It helps cement stubbornly to hold together even under the most severe circumstances.
Disadvantages of Refractory Cement
Though refractory cement has great strength when it falls it can harm the environment and also the people. The inner materials like asbestos can come out and mix with air particle. Then the particle can enter into the human body and cause massive tissue scarring and lead to a respiratory disorder called asbestosis. The thing can be even worse because cancerous disease known as mesothelioma can be developed.
