This session will be customized to the requirements of your team.

In this module, we will study specific aspects of ceramics technology, for instance:

  • Parameters used to evaluate, anticipate and control various processes: plasticity, mechanical strength, rupture, tenacity, particle size distribution and specific surface, trials and interpretation
  • Fluidity / moisture,  plasticity, permeability: trends and controls
  • Sintering (solid and liquid phase), pyroplasticity
  • Effect of the raw materials on ceramics
  • Milling, blunging, spray drying and how to control them
  • Rheology of slip and glaze, mechanisms, control, trends, effects


Half day minimum, depending on the content.

Could be combined with lab practice and/or kiln furniture, and/or ceramic processes, and/or mineral characterization.
