Abstract: The specimens were prepared using special grade bauxite clinker,andalusite,SiO2 micropowder and α-Al2O3 micropowder as main starting materials and Secar71 cement as binder.The mass ratio of ag-gregate to fines was 65 35 and the total addition of SiO2 micropowder and α-Al2 O3 micropowder was fixed at 8% (in mass,the same hereinafter),addition of α-Al2 O3 micropowder was 8%,6%,4%,2% and 0,re-spectively.Effects of adjusting additions of the two micropowders on the flowability,hot strength,phase composition and microstructure were researched.The results show that:when the additions of SiO2 mi-cropowder and α-Al2 O3 micropowder are both 4%,the specimen performs the best flowability;a lot of nee-dle like mullite crystals form at high temperatures,crossing into the corundum skeleton,endowing the mate-rials with the optimal cold modulus of rupture and thermal shock resistance.
