Alro 80 611 Y

Found Manuel Works, Whitecross.

80% Refers to the Alumina content. It was a chemically bonded product.

This is a very dense, heavy brick.

Alro is confirmed as a GR – Stein brand. It is a chemically bonded product.

On being bought over by the Cookson/Vesuvius group it’s manufacture was transferred to its Polish operation at Skawina near Krakow.

GR – Stein also made a high chrome alumina brick branded ALCRO but I am not aware of any image being available for this brick.
