Refractory ceramics have long fonned a vital part of the glass making and glass processing industries. Due to market pressures these industries are moving towards increasingly higher quality products and progressively improved plant efficiency. However, significant improvements to the refractory ceramics are difficult because of the range of properties which they are required to have. This second paper on ACT (Advanced Coating Technology) using platinum group metals, describes the latest developments and advantages conferred by ACT coatings to the various ceramic forehearth components.
