I-Minerals Inc. is in the process of developing a suite of high-value mineral products from a deposit called the Bovill Kaolin Project. The deposit is located in Bovill, Idaho, a small town that sits at the junction of Idaho State Highways 3 and 8 in the northern part of the state, 2,000 miles west and north of the Tennessee clay fields and 5,000 miles west of the Spanish K-spar mines.
Tungsten mesh has been in use for high-temperature furnace heating since the early 1960s. Tungsten mesh elements came into popularity because they were shown to be more durable than the earlier sheet-style elements.

Automotive exhaust purification systems were developed in the early 1970s in response to smog in the Los Angeles basin, legislation in California, and the 1970 U.S. Clean Air Act Amendments, where the latter set specific goals for reduction of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide emissions by the mid-1970s.
Grinding or cutting is a process whereby an abrasive particle embedded in a rotating wheel or knife edge removes material from a workpiece by mechanical means. The grinding wheel can be attached to a horizontal or vertical spindle, and the specimen can be mounted on a table surface that travels in either a rotary or reciprocating direction.
During firing, a glaze applied on a ceramic body undergoes several transformations, including water loss from the clay components, glass transition and softening. During the softening phase, the glaze starts to melt, giving rise to a continuous liquid layer.
