It serves as a worldwide forum for the exchange of business interests and the advancement of scientific knowledge among all manufacturers, clients, end users, and suppliers in the refractory industry.

Our team will be on site to present research papers and engage with you on all refractories-related topics.r

Elkem team to present research papers

Our team will deliver research papers on a few pertinent subjects in the field to share their knowledge on refractories. A technical paper based on AloxX™-Spheres will be presented by Dr. Hong Peng, who will be a chairman for the section of ‘Castables – Processing’ of the event. The paper is titled ‘The Influence of a novel spherical alumina on fracture behaviour of Al2O3-C sliding gate based on wedge splitting test’, and will be followed by another paper called ‘The size effect on the drying behavior of castables - An experimental and numerical perspective’ that is a joint paper to be presented by Prof. Victor Pandonfelli’s team.


Our product AloxX™-Spheres are spherical alumina particles produced in a proprietary process. AloxX™-Spheres particles are used in a range of refractory applications, such as sintering agent for high alumina applications as well as spinel formation and applications needing high thermal shock resistance. Come by booth 15 to hear more about AloxX™-Spheres and ask any questions you might have!

An excellent opportunity for networking

The 65th International Colloquium on Refractories is an exceptional chance to broaden your refractories industry network. During ICRJ 2022, participants from all around the world will have the opportunity to discuss, share, and learn about a variety of refractories-related topics.
