The refractories laboratories available in India are either research Institutes or in house laboratories engaged generally in research or quality control functions. There is longer lead time for some and conflict of interest with others makes it difficult to get any product tested independently and in a time bound manner.
In today’s' world, designers of refractories materials, equipments using refractories, purchasers and even refractory manufacturers need independent reliable testing of materials either to be used by them or produced by them. In certain cases the users insist to get the materials tested in overseas laboratory E.g. DIFK Germany, Ceram UK etc. It is costly and time consuming . A change in testing procedures some times leads to conflicts, generally resolved by intense communication. It is therefore essential that an independent laboratory be set up in the country which would have extremely high accuracy level, having modern equipments for testing as per procedures of all international specifications and provides quick results as per need of the test and industry.
