HCBS of roasted Chinese bauxite, plasticized with additives of refractory clay, and corundum or bauxite filler are used for the production of pressed ceramic castables of corundum and mullite-corundum compositions with 93–95% and 80–85% A12,O3, respectively. The optimum clay additive does not exceed 1–2%. The ceramic castables have a porosity of 15–18% and an ultimate compressive strength of 100–200 MPa after treatment at 1200–1300°C. As compared to traditional corundum refractories they are characterized by a finer capillary structure and a higher mechanical strength attained at a diminished (by a factor of 2–3) pressing pressure and a lower (by 400- 500°C) firing temperature.
