Paper Title:
Effect of Quartz of Fine Particle Size on Porcelain Properties
  Abstract

The mechanical properties of porcelain are strongly influenced by the generated thermal stress during processing. When quartz particle size is reduced its influence on the technical properties of ceramic products such as tiles and porcelains are changed. In this work, the properties of triaxial ceramics materials were evaluated using quartz of different particle size distribution. It was reported strong variations in mechanical strength and thermal shock strength. Although the cost of milling is increased to reduce quartz particle size, it can be compensated by its implicit advantages. The experimental results were very interesting showing the way that quartz particle size influences the analyzed properties. A significant improving in porcelain strength and thermal strength was obtained.
