Inside CI: Focus on Materials

Use the Materials Handbook to find materials suppliers throughout the year.

Welcome to our annual Materials Handbook issue! The handbook is organized with a definition/description for each material (listed alphabetically), followed by the names of suppliers that provide the material.* Use this informative guide to find suppliers throughout the year, and keep in mind that the fully searchable handbook is also available online at

While our staff made every effort to contact the entire community of suppliers to our industry, we may have inadvertently missed some. If you are a materials supplier and would like to be included, please contact AnnaMarie McCann at (610) 436-4220, ext. 8518, or email for pricing and additional details.

This issue also includes our annual “Raw & Manufactured Materials Overview” article. We compile information from market studies, technology reports and trend forecasts, as well as details from the U.S. Geological Survey, to provide a picture of the markets and opportunities for a number of raw and manufactured materials used in the ceramic, glass, brick, and related industries. As in previous years, our website and digital edition include an expanded version of this article, with more information/charts, as well as many additional materials.

As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve launched a redesign of the magazine with this issue! You’ll see a completely updated logo, along with new layouts for each section of the magazine. Our hope is that the new design will improve your reading experience through even more attractive articles, clean lines and easy-to-read charts/graphs.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the redesign. Please feel free to contact me at (330) 336-4098 or with your comments and suggestions.
