The recycling of cement asbestos slates (CASs) thermally treated in air at 1100 °C as secondary raw material in the production of Vitreous China (VC) sanitary wares has been investigated.

Abstract

The recycling of cement asbestos slates (CASs) thermally treated in air at 1100 °C as secondary raw material in the production of Vitreous China (VC) sanitary wares has been investigated. Deactivated cement asbestos powder (DCAP) has been used in individual substitutions (5 wt%) of quartz and feldspar. The single raw materials, the ceramic technological properties before and after firing, and the phases and microstructure evolution during firing have been investigated with a variety of techniques, including those commonly used for production quality checks and instrumental methods for mineralogical analyses. DCAP acts as flux rather than as inert in the firing process, promoting greification. Although the substituted samples have some critical aspects that need to be addressed before processing, such as the presence of sulphate salts that increase the dispersant demand and the colour of the fired ceramic body, the overall technological properties are comparable to those of normal production, suggesting the possible reuse of DCAP powder in the production of sanitary wares.
