This guide applies to all refractory castables with a reactive binder system that produces a measurable heat profile during the setting and hardening process. The quality of field casts can be greatly improved by using Heat of Hydration (Exothermic profile) to determine set and strength development.

Knowing the status of set time and strength development during field installations gives Installers and End Users the ability to determine when the optimal time is to de-mold and/or start the bake out process, to ensure a defect free installation.
