Nocement castables have the last few years become increas ingly popular, particularly since the introduction of SioxX Zero (microsilicagel bond) and DAReS (Dry Advanced Refractory System) binder technologies. In parallel with the development of these binder systems, development of highly specialised raw materials has progressed, and the current paper focuses on the use of spherical alumina for nocement applications in general, and silicafree corundumspinel systems in particular.
