Silicate Research Unit

David Binns and Alasdair Bremner have set up the Silicate Research Unit within the Department of Design. the website can be found at

The SRU can be described as firmly rooted in Ceramics. However, its research extends beyond materials that purely fit within the 'standard' classification of ceramic materials. Research interests involve related materials such as Glass, Refractory Concretes and Concrete itself. The common or unifying ‘sub-material’ found within all these materials is Silica – hence the term ‘Silicates Research'.
