WESTERVILLE, OH, June 8, 2005 -- The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) will host UNITECR 05, the 9th Biennial Worldwide Congress on Refractories, November 8-11, 2005 in Orlando, Florida, at the Rosen Centre Hotel. This prestigious global event in the refractories industry is rotated among the participating countries and will not return to the United States until 2013. UNITECR is conducted in association with the German Refractory Association (GRA), the Association Latinoamericana de Fabricantes de Refractarios (ALAFAR), and The Technical Association of Refractories, Japan (TARJ).

This premier celebration of refractory technology and applications is expected to attract more than 1,000 attendees and feature over 200 technical presentations providing information on the latest advances, applications, and successes in refractories. Key refractories manufacturers, users, technologists, and scientists are expected to come together to discover and exchange current worldwide refractories technology.

The associated exhibit will showcase products and services used in the refractory industry. Suppliers and users of all refractory-related products and services are urged to attend. Exhibit hours are 9:30 am to 7:00 pm Wednesday, November 9, and 10:00 am to 7:00 pm Thursday, November 10.

For more than 18 years, UNITECR has been held biennially on a rotational basis in each country of the founding members. This organization has played an important role internationally to foster the exchange of technical information concerning refractories.

The American Ceramic Society is an international association of scientists, engineers, industrialists, potters, and artists who are active in the creation of new products, applications, and research regarding ceramics and related materials.
