The material can be used to fabricate a wide range of industrial pro- ducts: burner stones, stools, stands, supports, protecting sleeves, etc. OTM-959-grade corundum-mullite material for service Tests were carried out on OTM-959 material components under conditions of high temperature, mechanical loading, at furnace temperatures of up to 1800°C in moist hydrogen, and corrosive medium has been developed. The material is nitrogen, and carbon-saturated atmospheres. Some compo- prepared from aqueous suspensions with the addition of a nents retained working capacity over a period of 1.5 years at granular filler at the stage of shaping.
