There are currently 75 manufacturing units in the membership of IRMA. These units produce a wide range of insulating, abrasion- resistant and corrosion-resistant refractories, ranging from firebricks, insulating refractories to a wide variety of high alumina, silica, magnesite and speciality refractories.
These products are regularly used in the construction and operation of steel plant blast furnaces, coke ovens, basic oxygen furnaces and electric arc furnaces, cement rotary kilns, glass melting furnaces, non-ferrous metal smelters, petrochemical plants and so on.
