High Temperature Times: HTT Goes to the Movies

For this Halloween Special of High Temperature Times™, we pay homage to the movies for their crucial role in making Halloween great. But in true HTT fashion, we’re diving deep into the high temperature scenes of movies to look at the refractories involved.

Listen in to learn about the industries and refractories used in movies like Diamonds are Forever, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and the commonly used horror trope of burning bodies in a municipal boiler.

To learn more about the refractories actually used in these applications, reach out to our technical marketing team.

In the meantime, have a Happy Halloween! 🎃
