Characterization of Granite Waste for Incorporation in Red Ceramic

Abstract:

Article Preview

This work had as its objective the characterization of a granite powder waste from sawing operations with a view to its incorporation in red ceramic. The granite waste came from the municipal area of Santo Antônio de Pádua, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The characterization was performed in terms of chemical composition, particles size distribution, X-ray diffraction and thermal analysis (DTA/TG). The results indicate that the granite waste presents favorable characteristics for incorporation in red ceramic compositions due to its fine granulometry as well as a considerable fluxing potential related to its high amount of alkaline oxides.
