Despite the decline in overall steel production, there has been significant growth in the use of continuous casting as a means of improving quality and productivity. With this growth has come an increasing demand for higher performance refractories. Many refractories have been installed as preformed shapes which have been made by casting, pressing, or ramming. Emphasis is given to direct-bonded high fired shapes which have excellent thermal stability, strength, and refractoriness. Specific laboratory data as well as application and performance results are presented.
