Cover Story (view full-size image): Sodium is known to diffuse down through the cathode lining in Hall–Héroult cells, possibly reaching the thermal insulation in the bottom of the lining. In this work, the reaction between sodium and three commercial thermal insulation materials was investigated for the first time via a laboratory test combined with thermodynamic considerations of possible mineralogical transformations due to reaction with Na. The results revealed clear differences between the materials with respect to chemical and structural stability. View this paper
