Summary

Although vitreous china is a very old material, many aspects of its behavior are still not well understood, particularly its high temperature mechanical properties. The glost firing is a critical stage because items may only be partially supported, allowing undesirable deformation or creep. The aim of this program was to understand better the factors controlling creep behavior. Previous studies have shown that the extent of deformation of material is critically dependent on chemical composition and proportion of crystalline phases. The present study investigates the role of raw materials in creep behavior, with emphasis on the influence of particle size of feldspars and added alumina particles.
