TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
Legacy refractory materials that have origins dating to the original Saturn program are commonly used in current launch facilities. Although they failure to meet the target requirements, they are the only approved material. Our research team proposed to develop an ultra high temperature refractory system that uses a non-cement binder, a high temperature macro aggregate, and reactive nano aggregates. The developed binder system will exhibit substantial improvements in strength and have functional limit of 4000F.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Refractory for propulsion test facilities, launch facilities

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Refractory for DOD propulsion test facilities, launch facilities
