REMET has been helping customers make ceramic shells/molds for over 30 years, so supplying materials for the manufacturing of ceramic shapes was a natural extension. REMET has great technical depth in making ceramics and binders work well together. This market consists of several smaller markets including manufacturers of riser sleeves, kiln furniture, pouring cups, filter boxes, furnace linings, fiber board and block, fiber fire logs, etc. These various industries all require the ceramic building materials along with the binders to form the shapes. In addition, some utilize rapid prototyping to design new products quickly.
