On careful scrutiny of the Alz03-SiO 2 phase equilibrium studies it becomes possible to isolate various factors controlling the melting behaviour of mullite. The influence of these factors differs in sign (+ or -) and magnitude. The predominance of some of these causes mullite to melt incongruently in certain experiments while in others it melts congruently due to the predominating reverse factors. The controversy about incongruent and congruent melting of mullite is resolved and both the views are proved to be valid.
