I can confirm that Cristalica is corrosive to refractories. Iíve gotten more casting corrosion in the past 4 months of Cristalica compared to the previous two years of SP87. Cristalica has been chewing out a door that was cast in Supermax MZ

The economics donít seem to be working out either. Working temps are higher, washing out any energy saving from not melting batch. Couple that with more expensive glass to start with and higher maintenance cost, it means that Iím switching back to SP87ER after this pallet is complete. A failed experiment in my opinion.
