Development of ceramic tiles using waste materials

Rana, Shambhu bhusan (2014) Development of ceramic tiles using waste materials. BTech thesis.



Red mud from aluminium industry and Fly ash from the thermal power plant were regarded as hazardous industry waste all over the world.The present study emphasizes the development of ceramic tiles utilizing red mud and fly ash as raw materials. The bulk density,apparent porosity, wt. loss on sintering, linear shrinkage, water suction, water absorption properties of the developed products are studied carefully. The study showed that tailoring the composition ceramic tiles could be made utilizing up to 50% red mud when used along with clay and up to 80% west utilization when used in combination (red mud and fly ash together) with clay.
