"An investigation of mechanical properties of carbon-bonded alumina refractories derived from thermosetting phenolic resins and the secondary bonding characteristics produced by aluminum metal additions was carried out. Glassy carbon formed from phenolic resins was found to prevent sintering of sub-micron alumina powders thus decreasing cold crushing strength and sonic modulus of elasticity. Aluminum powder additions increased the strength of the carbon-bonded refractory samples after firing above 800° C through the formation of aluminum oxide. The optimum processing temperature for carbon-bonded refractories was concluded to be 1000° C"--Abstract, page iii.
