Development of Iron Oxide-Rich Frits and Glazes for Application on Ceramic Tiles

Descripción

In this study, different frit compositions were prepared in the SiO2–CaO–Fe2O3 system. The amounts of Fe2O3 were varied between 10 mass-% and 40 mass-%. The frits were melted and characterized using several different techniques in order to study the crystalline composition of the frits and glazes and assess their suitability for tile production processes. The characterization of the frits revealed the presence of multiple iron oxide forms. Finally, in order to confirm appropriate glaze maturity, glaze slips were prepared and applied to tile bases. The final glazes displayed a glass-ceramic character and good adaptability to the tile bases with defect-free surfaces. It is important to note that thermal kinetics affects the final properties of glazes. These glazes could be optimized in the future for development of semiconducting glaze compositions for use in anti-static coatings or radiation shielding.
