Investigation the conditions for obtaining Bulgarian yellowcolored pavings, equivalent in color to the imported produced on base of sedimentary rock

  • 1 Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Institute of Metal Science, Equipment and Technologies with Hydro- and Aerodynamics Centre, Sofia, Bulgaria


The development deals with the study of the conditions for appearance of yellow color in ceramic products, obtained from local sedimentary marl rocks from the region of Popovo town, field of Targovishte. Reproduction of the conditions of high temperature liquid-phase synthesis of products such as pavings, tiles, etc., by modifying the composition of the marls. Expanding the sintering interval of rectifying the alkaline-earth oxide content and increasing the phase formation time. The researches are part of the creation and implementation of a technology for production of pavings with equivalent yellow color of the imported standards but with higher tribological and physic-mechanical indicators.
