UNITECR 2015: TiO2 can boost magnesia-chrome brick performance
Published: Thursday, 17 September 2015
Research from the University of Pretoria in South Africa has shown that by adding 1% titanium dioxide to a high quality magnesia carbon brick can demonstrably improve its mechanical and thermal-mechanical properties – a finding that could gain traction in the present wave of enthusiasm for better performing refractory products.
Adding small amounts of titanium dioxide
bricks can noticeably enhance the performance of these
refractory lining materials, delegates at the 14th Unified
International Technical Conference on Refractories (UNITECR) in Vienna,
Austria, heard yesterday.
Delphin Mulange, a researcher at the University of Pretoria,
South Africa, explained how TiO2 can be...
