Abstract

"Users of refractories are constantly demanding a better product. There is a demand for a satisfactory neutral or basic refractory with a P.C.E. equivalent of cone 35 or better. A refractory with a very high alumina content would seem to solve this problem, however, the main difficulty has been to bond the unplastic alumina. From the literature it was learned that Lumnite cement has been satisfactory in the manufacture of a refractory concrete. Therefore this investigation was carried out to determine the adaptability of bonding corundum with Lumnite"--Introduction, page 1.
