Alumina-chrome bodies were prepared by slip casting route. Slip casted bodies were sintered in the temperature range of 1550-1650 degrees C in reducing atmosphere with 2 h soaking time at peak temperature. Highly dense alumina-chrome body with bulk density 4.24 g/cc and almost zero apparent porosity were obtained at 1650 degrees C. The hot corrosion test of alumina-chrome crucible against borosilicate glass was carried out in static condition at 1200 degrees C for 4 h. The study of the glass-refractory interface after static corrosion test was done by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The XRD pattern of glass-refractory interface does not show formation of any new phases. Elemental mapping of glass-refractory interface indicates corrosion up to a depth of 70 mm has taken place in the form of ion migration.
