Production of interior facing tiles using local raw materials
Mix compositions for interior facing tile have been developed using local raw materials: low-melting polymineral clay from the Gaidukovka deposit, dolomite from the Ruba deposit, granitoid dust from the Mikashevich deposit and sand from the quartz Gomel’ Mining-Enrichment Works as well as DNPK refractory clay and KS-1 kaolin, both imported from Ukraine. The ceramic tiles have high physical-chemical properties.
