how is ceramic tile made?

After firing ceramic tiles to glaze, it is time to put the tiles into the kiln to be fired.
Traditionally, tiles are baked for a few hours in what is called a cycle kiln (such as a honeycomb kiln.
However, in the last century, it was the continuous kiln that made the production process of ceramic tiles more efficient.
Continuous kiln includes tunnel kiln and roller-hearth kilns.
If you go to a sandwich shop where the workers heat the sandwich through a toaster, then you will understand these new kilns.
Instead of sitting in hot weather for hours, Tile rolls through the conveyor belt-
Type device (
Specific equipment varies from kiln to kiln).
The heat inside the kiln is accurately monitored by the computer.
In the first half of the tile journey, things began to warm up.
The maximum temperature can be as high as 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit at the center point (1,371.
1 degree Celsius), is reached [Source: Gan].
The higher the temperature, the stronger the brick will be.
When the tile reaches the other side of the tube, it cools down gradually.
However, the cooling period is not as passive as it sounds ---
The color of the tiles is still changing.
With these rolling or continuous kilns, the process goes from fixed baking for a few hours to less than an hour.
This allows manufacturers to produce more tiles for the market at a reasonable price.
The revival of this approach has also accelerated this process.
The Italian term Monocottura means \"burn once\", which brings more power to the tiles.
This extra strength makes the tile change from the product that is most suitable for the wall to the product that is also good for the floor [

After a hot kiln trip, the tiles made with the monocottura method are ready to be sorted and delivered to the store.
If burning only one tile makes it so powerful, why burn it again?
If you want a tile with multiple colors or fine patterns, then this tile will be baked in a double spell.
While the prefix would indicate that the tile was fired twice, it could actually be fired multiple times as needed.
Before each firing, apply a different colored glaze on the tile and repeat the process until the design is complete.
At this point, our superhero tiles have changed from clay to dust to tiles.
Tiles may need more clothing changes than Wonder Woman, but it can also go more places than her to your home.
