Use of Schungite Rocks as a Binder in Refractory Materials

  • A. S. Zavertkin
  • R. V. Sadovnichii

Results are provided for a study of the efficiency of using schungite rocks as a binder in refractory materials. It is demonstrated that refractory compositions with schungite binder have the better physicochemical indices than compositions with a traditional graphite binder.
