Environmental Performance of Nonmetallic Materials

Published:
2005

Abstract

This article provides an overview of environmental performance of the most commonly used nonmetallic materials. The materials include elastomers, plastics, thermosetting resins, resin-matrix composites, organic coatings, concrete, refractories, and ceramics. The article also provides information on the applications and uses of these materials.

Abstract

This article provides an overview of the corrosion theory relating to refractories on the basis of acid/base reactions, thermodynamics, and kinetic considerations. The tests to evaluate refractory corrosive wear are reviewed. The article describes the specific refractories used in steel, glass, aluminum, and chemical-resistant applications. Specific material issues that should be considered or evaluated when choosing or using refractory materials are discussed.
