073. Hydration tendency

The tendency of refractory materials or articles to combine with water in moist air or steam under controlled test conditions.

074. Hydration bond hydraulic bond

At normal temperature, a combination of solidification and hardening occurs through a chemical reaction between a certain fine powder and water (013).

075. injection mix

The unshaped refractory materials (138) for construction can be extruded by a pump with a pressure of 1MPa2MPa. Note: The pressed material can be used directly according to the delivery state, or can be used after mixing as required.

076. Insulating refractory

Refractory material (108) with low thermal conductivity (130) and low heat capacity. Note: Insulating refractory is a general term. There is a special definition for shaped products, see (117).

077, jointing material

Refractory materials used for masonry and bonding of refractory products by applying, grouting or impregnating methods (108). Note 1: These materials are a mixture of fine refractory aggregate (003), fine powder (059) and binder (010), delivered in dry or used condition. Note 2: See air-setting refractory mud (004) and thermosetting refractory mud (071).

078. lime refractory

Refractory materials with calcium oxide content (mass fraction) greater than or equal to 70% and magnesium oxide content (mass fraction) less than 30% (108).

079. Low aluminum clay refractory low aluminum fireclay refractory
