Before watching Perseverance take off on the Atlas V rocket this month, learn about the important role refractories play by enduring the nearly 1,000,000 pounds of thrust needed to launch the rocket into space. Tune in to learn about the different types of refractories used on launch pads, and how HWI developed and qualified the APOLLOCRETE product line specifically for this industry.
