Abstract

Wear resistance is of great importance for many industries related with minerals. The particles seen in these industries may cause erosion. These particles may have various sizes, shapes, and hardness, and may also impact the surface at various angles and speeds. Wear resistance is also important for the ceramic tile industry because the materials, which are also used in building facades, must withstand all kinds of weather conditions. In this study, the wear resistance of the porcelain tile bodies was investigated by solid particle impingement using alumina particles. The effects of technological, mechanical, and microstructural properties on wear resistance were also investigated. It was determined that the technological, mechanical, and microstructural properties were improved with the addition of spodumene, which also caused that the wear rates were reduced.
