Description; A spinel forming alumina induction furnace lining. The aggregate is fused chrome alumina and the fines are high purity sintered and reactive aluminas and 12% dead burned seawater magnesia. There is no frit addition. Sintering is by spinel forming reaction which gives expansion and a tight sealed hot face, with powder behind it to prevent crack propagation.

Maximum service temperature; 1750ºC.

Density; Hand rammed density is around 2,9g/cm³.
