EFFECT OF WASTE ADDITION ON PLASTICITY OF MIXTURES: Wall tiles are formed using the dry pressing
technique using as much as seven percent water to impart plasticity to the raw mix.
In the manufacturing of ceramic tiles by dry pressing
method on the flow-conveyor lines by single-firing, the main criterion of obtaining a product of reduced thickness is to increase their mechanical strength in the molded, air-drying and in fired state that connected with the need to provide them with sufficient mechanical strength to be able to make further technological operations--transportation of semi-finished products for the roller conveyor in drying unit, its engobing, glazing and firing without deformation and fracture.
The topics include powder compaction by dry pressing
, hot isostatic pressing and gas-pressure sintering, vapor-phase deposition of oxides, thermoplastics and monomers as non-conventional polymers in ceramic processing, and high-pressure routes to ceramics.
Available manufacturing technologies include tape casting, dry pressing
, lasering and metalizing.
The Intra-Steam cycle intersperses dry pressing
with powerful bursts of steam taking the steaming guesswork out of the user's hands.
The preferred method for producing the mold is the dry pressing
method, in which the molds are made by pressing the ceramic mixture in dies under pressure.
