It is primarily made of clay, kaolin and feldspar but they also include other raw materials. The production technology of tiles is dry pressing. The required composition is blended with water to form slurry. This slurry then fed into spray driers to form uniform granules ready for compaction. These granules are then shaped to form the green body. This can then be glazed. The green ceramic body is fired at high temperatures, resulting in a hard body. Kalesinterflex® has two surface alternatives as glazed and polished. It can be used as is or with fibreglass laminated backing depending on the application.
