General Group Overview
This group is heavily involved in the development of advanced refractories for nonferrous industries (Zn, Pb, Ni, Cu, and others), the development of new castable refractories, in-situ sinterable basic castables, corosion of refractories in contact with non-ferrous slags, mechano-chemical processing of refractories; mechanical alloying of ceramics; and the evaluation of processing – properties correlations for refractories.
