The objective of the book is to outline the present state of the science and techniques of heavy clays as clearly as possible. The book deals with raw materials (clay in the quarry and additives in the clay mixture), the fundamentals of processing (clay mixture preparation, product shaping, drying, firing, etc.), and plant and machinery.
The impact of the environment and the industry’s search for quality are reviewed, and the mechanical, thermal, moisture-related and durability properties of the products are studied. The development offered by new technologies and the potential of new products are also dealt with, as are the new European standardization and CE marking.
