  • Grinding cement

    Grinding ultra-fine cement at industrial level

    Materials World magazine
    A cementitious minerals processing technology could provide an alternative to ball mills for producing ultra-fine-particles for industrial applications, such as grouts for oil and gas exploration and high performance building products. The technology is also said to be suitable for industries handling pumice, calcium carbonate, talc, nepheline syenite, clays, ceramics, zeolites and graphite.
  • Low–porosity ceramic tiles

    Materials World magazine
    Improved stain resistance in polished ceramic tiles may now be possible, say researchers at the Instituto de Ceramica y Vidrio in Spain, who have introduced an organic fugitive phase during liquid sintering of green tiles to achieve reduced porosity volume with various pore sizes.
  • Journal of the month.....was a success!
