The results of thermodynamic modeling of the solid-phase processes accompanying the firing of light-tone volume-colored ceramic brick based on refractory clay and an artificial fluxing agent are presented. X-ray diffraction studies of ceramic samples confirm the results of the thermodynamic calculations. Consistent patterns in phase formation occurring in ceramic brick prepared with an artificial fluxing agent are presented.
