Summary

The properties of ceramic tile bodies was investigated. Optimizing properties within an acceptable range, increases the yield of processing equipment such as ball mills, spray dryers, presses, dryers, and kilns. Chemical and mineralogical properties of raw materials, milling of particles, slip properties, pressing pressure, and drying and firing conditions all affect the properties of ceramic bodies. In this investigation, in addition to the above mentioned parameters, the body formula of floor tile has been changed and optimized.
