For a short description, use and applications of different type of monolithic refractory products like - castables, ramming mass, refractory mortar, gunning compound, fettling mass, injection mass, spraying mass and other varieties read article - Nomenclatures and Terminologies of Monolithic Refractory Products based on their setting or installation methods    

Monolithic refractories or Monolithic Refractory Products are those, which have no definite shape. In other words these are the refractories which can be moulded or can be given any shape as per requirement. Because of this reason, these products are also known as the ready-refractories and can be used as such on the site to repair or build a furnace. Monolithics consists of graded Refractory aggregates, Binders, Fillers & (/or) special Additives for modification of properties.​
