Custom Refractories

At Vulcan Refractories, we understand that the need for unique and specified refractory products is commonplace. For years, we have produced custom refractory products for businesses around the world. Each is manufactured to meet your exact design needs, ensuring precision and excellence.

Whether you require specialised shapes, unique compositions or specific performance characteristics, we can develop and create a tailored solution.

Understanding your needs 

Our process starts with a consultation to understand your specific needs. At Vulcan Refractories, we can make a wide array of products, and usually, these are specified by customers themselves. Therefore you get the exact product you require.

During the initial conversation, we need to know about factors such as operating temperatures, chemical exposure, mechanical stress, and dimensional requirements. This information helps our team of experts to make the best suggestions based on your requirements.

Choosing your product and shape

Whilst your product will be custom, we have a range of core material recipes. The next step involves you choosing which one you require.

Once chosen, you will need to provide us with a drawing of the shape of the product needed. This helps our team to create product trials for testing.

Testing and trialling

Once you have the “prototype” product, we send this to your premises for testing. This stage allows you to use the product in its desired environment so that you can ascertain whether it’s right for your application. (Please note this step is done at the customer’s own risk.)


Once you are 100% happy with the product and how it performs on-site, you can place your main order with Vulcan Refractories. We will then book your order into our factory, and our manufacturing process will begin. Ensuring we adhere to the strict quality control standards we set, and that are required by regulations.

Delivery and Support

We provide timely delivery and offer ongoing support to ensure the successful implementation of our custom refractory solutions. Our team is always available to assist with any questions.
