Recycling, Recovery and Improvement of Properties of Ceramic Tile Manufacturing by Adding Two Types of Glass in Clay Mixtures
Today, recycling industrial waste plays a major role in our society. Waste is used as additive in the production of a certain number of products. It enables to reduce the costing price per piece and to enhance some of the properties of the material, and to reduce pollution problems. To meet the various criteria, and manufacturing requirements of contemporary ceramic tile and bring a solution to our environment, an addition of waste glass from lamps public lighting and neon (cullet) is incorporated in various ceramic masse for substituted a feldspar. A comparative study is made between the properties obtained with each type of waste on the one hand and the other with the properties of tile produced in the industry. It was found that the tiles made with waste glass lighting lamps offer higher mechanical strength than that obtained with the feldspar and a good agreement between the shard - enamel. Although the value of strength obtained with the waste of neon is lower than that obtained with the first type of glass. The latter always remains higher than that of industrial value.
