Course objective: To understand the basic building blocks that make up the structure of a refractory material, where they are used and how they are made.



This course will explain:

  • The global refractory market
  • Material chemistry and physical properties
  • The in-service environment and application areas
  • Manufacturing processes of shaped and unshaped components
  • The various application areas of refractories.



At the end of the course, you will be able to:
