Abstract

This paper deals with those ceramic products which can be utilised at high temperatures and examines the potentialities for future research in this important industrial area. After giving a definition and classification of these products, the status of the traditional refractory industry is considered, with particular reference to problem areas, applications in traditional industries and trends of development. Then the development of non-traditional ceramics is considered, drawing attention to the need of non-traditional ceramics for advanced technology. Other aspects under analysis are advanced technologies (high quality refractories and untraditional ceramics) with applications in energy conversion and materials processing, and potentialities for R&D. Finally conclusions are presented on industrial innovations, the need for international cooperation and future developments are recommended.
