The chemical-mineralogical compositions and physical-chemical characteristics of Yazyavanskoe dune sands as well as the suitability of these sands for use together with other raw materials available in Uzbekistan in optimizing the compositions of ceramic facing tiles were studied. It was found that the weight content of dune sand and the composition of the ceramic body of facing tile in ternary and quaternary compositions must not exceed 45 and 25%, respectively. The optimal technological parameters for obtaining ceramic tiles using dune sands, meeting GOST 6141–91 specifications, are determined.
