VICO-Still® Hexagonal mesh and accessories for refractory armouring


Hexagonal mesh, Hexmesh or Hexmetal as it sometimes referred to is a honeycomb pattern of steel bars used to retain refractories in anti-abrasive and anti-corrosive thin wall linings used in the oil, petrochemical, metallurgical, chemical, and cement industries.

Punched Tabs

To ensure refractory lining continuity at transition points in vessels lined with VICO- Still® Costacurta has designed a range of accessories referred to as punch tabs. These are used for joining unaligned surfaces together for smooth transition to avoid refractory fractures and premature erosion. They are in addition to a wide range of refractory anchors.

VICO-Rep anchors (S bars)

For air distributors VICO-Rep anchors (S-bars) are often used in combination with VICO-Stillflex, but are also an indispensable means of ensuring quick and effective means of refractory or concrete lining repair. S-bars are made from plates of any thickness and can be made in any shape requested


Costacurta produces numerous different types of anchor to meet the technical specifications of the main process and engineering companies.

VICO-Anchors of many shapes and sizes are manufactured for armouring anti-abrasive and anti-corrosive refractory linings up to 500 mm thick using round and/or flat bars, with the main materials being AISI 304, 410, 310, 321.

In addition to supply Costacurta has considerable experience in the creation of construction and assembly drawings outlining anchor layout.

Very competitive pricing is achieved due to the high production quantities generated with technologically advanced automatic machines.
