Abstract

"The method of bloating brick of low refractoriness has been accomplished by the addition of carbonates of the alkalines and alkaline earths which when acid is applied give off CO₂ to form a porous structure. It was thought that if a material which would not act as a flux might even enhance the refractoriness of the clay used a high temperature insulator might be produced which would compare favorably to those now produced by the use of volatiles. An aluminum salt which when combines with a non-metalic sic base that would generate a gas was selected. The aluminum in the process of firing would oxidize to the refractory Al₂O₃ and the base would volatilize without detriment at the refractoriness of the brick"--Purpose, page 9.
