Application of magnesium-bearing technogenic raw material in the production of decorative-finishing ceramics

  • V. A. Gur’eva

It is shown that magnesium-bearing technogenic raw materials can be used with low firing temperatures to obtain decorative-finishing articles with satisfactory physical and mechanical properties—tile for interior wall facing and facades, unglazed and glazed tiles, and ceramic brick.
