About Us

Avkem International

Avkem International produces a wide variety of castables, board products, and coatings for non-ferrous metals and steel, including larger items such as troughing, launder lines, holding areas, and transfer ladles.

As one of the leading suppliers of refractory coatings, Avkem produces and carries a wide variety of water and non-water based coatings. Coating types range from Boron Nitride, Graphite, Zircon, and Ceramic-Based. We offer packaging from one gallon pails to 55 gallon drums, with custom packaging upon request. Avkem also provides distribution/mixing solutions to customers to facilitate proper coating mixing, distribution, and utilization.

Avkem International also manufactures smaller parts such as floats, spouts, control pins, baffles, spacers, dam boards, degassers, and many other products. We are often able to take an existing pre-castor board part and covert it to another material to reduce cost and/or increase overall value by improving metal flow and/or thermal conductivity. Avkem’s strong pre-cast capabilities combined with our extensive CNC machining ensures competitive costs and efficient production.

With roots dating back 25 years, Avkem International focuses on providing innovative solutions for our customers. We believe in the old-fashioned way of doing business where extraordinary customer service, attention to quality, and hard work are paramount. Our experienced team is knowledgeable and can help deliver custom solutions tailored to your specific needs. Avkem is highly responsive, with on-time delivery on orders of all sizes. Most importantly, we genuinely care about our customers and are more than willing to go above and beyond to ensure 100% satisfaction.
