Industrial progress, greatly advances in the latest years, imposes more and more severe conditions to refractory linings and demands materials of more and more sophisticated qualities in order to meet the requirements of better performances under every technical and economical aspect.

In order to take active part in this quick developing process, in addi­tion to the individual Works Laboratories charged with the produc­tion control and testing (from raw materials to finished products), SANAC owns a Central Laboratory of Research.
