Summary

An experiment relating to the application of a dry process for the preparation of a ceramic mix for fast-single-fired vitrified tile, usually prepared via wet process, is described. The experiment made possible a comparison between the dry and wet systems on the same mix. The results obtained on the L, a, b scale relating to the powders, semimanufactured products, and finished products are discussed. The differences between technological parameters and performance of the powders and tiles produced by the dry and wet systems are emphasized.
