GARBERS-CRAIG, A.M.. Presidential Address: How cool are refractory materials?. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2008, vol.108, n.9, pp. 491-506. ISSN 2411-9717.

This paper reviews the history of refractory materials, highlights the development of refractory technology over the years, draws attention to the technology behind these materials, and comments on future developments in this field. By walking the path with refractory materials, from their initial uses in BC times, to the composite materials that are used nowadays, and the nanotechnology developments that are currently taking place in this field, the reader will come to agree that refractory materials are indeed very 'cool'!

Palavras-chave : refractory materials; bricks; monolithic materials.
