I-4 High Abrasion Resistant Glazes for Fast Fired Porcelain

Field of work:

Field I : Process Innovations for Traditional Ceramics

First step for the production of high-abrasion resistant glazes is a reproducible characterization of the surface. A sandblast test equipment is used to damage the surface. After damaging the surface is examined via laser scanning microscopy. Based on the understanding of the damaging process the formulation of new high-abrasion resistant glazes becomes possible.
