Excavations, Surveys and Heritage Management in Victoria (Australia). Volume 5 2016. Source From the above paper it was determined that bricks marked ‘Garnkirk Patent’ and ‘John Grieve Bankpark Firebrick Works’ were found during excavations of the Langlands Iron Foundry, Flinders Street, Melbourne which was Victorias first iron foundry and engineering firm. Garnkirk Fireclay Works, Garnkirk,…

Pyropalite – may be a word to describe the coating used to fire the products.
Pyro – fire / heat
Palite ? – Patent – 1891 – Heat resistant insulating material – PURPOSE:To improve heat resisting and insulating performance by forming a protective film by a method wherein a base material is coated with any one of eight heat resistant insulating compositions obtained by subjecting a water-soluble silicate to various heat resisting and insulating treatments and the surface of this coat is coated with an alkali resisting coating material, to which fluorine coating material is applied. CONSTITUTION:A first heat resisting and insulating composition (referred to hereinafter as composition for short) is produced by reaction of alkoxysilane derivative with a water-soluble silicate (referred to hereinafter as silicate for short), a second composition produced by reaction of organosilica sol with the silicate, a third composition produced by reaction of aluminosilicate and the alkoxysilane derivative, a fourth composition produced by incorporating fine particles of the metal oxide for improving melting point in the first and second compositions, a fifth composition produced by adding the metal oxide for improving melting point to the third composition, a sixth composition produced by coating the powder of the first to fifth compositions with synthetic resin, a seventh composition produced by impregnating fabric with the synthetic resin and an eighth composition produced by mixing bone materials such as palite. A material 2 is coated with any one of the above-mentioned eight compositions to form a composition layer 3. This composition layer is then coated with an alkali resisting coating material 7, to which fluorine coating material is applied.
