Summary

High density infrared (HDI) heating offers a unique method for surface modification. The technique was used to surface treat commercial high alumina refractories where surface melting was observed. During solidification of the surface melted region, highly oriented mullite grains with the c-axis perpendicular to the surface were precipitated. Preliminary corrosion testing with molten copper showed less penetration into the HDI treated materials.
