Structure Formation in Densely Sintered Household Ceramics

  • I. A. Levitskii
  • Yu. A. Klimosh


The formation specifics of the structure and phase composition of densely sintered ceramics based on a low-melting argillaceous material from Belarus together with a combined flux and a grog additive are investigated. The correlation between the physicochemical properties, structure, phase composition, and the time-temperature firing schedules of the developed materials are investigated. Electron probe microanalysis makes it possible to monitor variations in the chemical composition at various local sites and compare it with the estimated composition of the mixture. The optimum regimes for the heat treatment of articles are determined.
