Casting Pins, Rods and Tubes

Casting pins

Anderman Industrial Ceramics supplies a diversified range of ceramic casting pins, rods and tubes to a multitude of industries worldwide. Used for high temperature supports in the production of complex super alloy investment casting processes.

We hold extensive stocks of fine grained alumina, mullite and zirconia in tube and rod forms. All of our products can be machined to custom sizes on request. Sizes range from 0.3mm diameter rods/tubes up to 1m diameter tubes in lengths from several mm long to over 2000mm.

With excellent electrical insulation and high temperature resistance our zirconia, alumina and mullite rods/tubes have very good thermal shock properties and can withstand temperatures up to 1700o C.

Our casting rods and tubes are manufactures by extrusion, casting or pressing and are made from a high purity material and used in applications where product strength, Dimensional stability and thermal shock are critical parameters for the casting process.  Custom profiles are also available such as Oval, Square, Rectangular, Hexagonal or other.

Priced by the inch/mm or by custom shape, our casting rods and tubes can be length specific, according to our customers needs.
