The melting behavior of the wollastonite-feldspar system was studied using high-temperature microscopy. The decrease in the silhouette area of a cylindrical sample as a function of the temperature showed behavior characteristic for each mixture. The melting behavior was expressed further as three characteristic measuring points: T1, the temperature at which the material started to sinter; T2, the temperature at which the sintering was finished; and T3, the temperature at which the material started to float out.
