Silicon carbide particle embedded magnesium oxychloride cement composite bricks for polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles

2011-10-01
Silicon carbide (SiC) particle embedded magnesium oxychloride cement (MOC) composite polishing bricks developed for polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles were produced by incorporating 600 and 1200 grit SiC particles to the MOC paste in the amounts of 20, 25 and 30 wt-%. Density, compressive strength, abrasion resistance and polishing properties of the bricks were determined with respect to the amount and particle size of the SiC powder. SiC particle embedment enhanced density, compressive strength and abrasion resistance of the neat MOC paste. Polishing was accomplished both in laboratory scale and in a typical online industrial scale. The polishing performance of the bricks was evaluated in terms of mean surface roughness and optical gloss of ceramic tiles, and abrasive brick consumption occurred during polishing. Scanning electron microscopy examinations revealed evidences of the reasons that 25 wt-% SiC particle embedded MOC bricks have the best qualifications in terms of abrasion resistance and polishing performance.

Özer, Muhammed Said; Öztürk, Abdullah; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
Magnesium oxychloride cement (MOC) based grinding and polishing bricks developed for polishing of granite based ceramic tiles were produced and characterized. For surface grinding 46 and 180 grit size SiO2 powder embedded MOC based abrasive bricks; for polishing 600 and 1200 grit size SiC powder embedded MOC based abrasive bricks followed by neat (unreinforced) MOC pastes were applied on ceramic tiles. Three different neat MOC pastes depending on MgO/MgCl2 molar ratio in the paste e.g. 6/1, 7/1, and 8/1, we...
Compressive strength development of calcium aluminate cement-GGBFS blends
Kirca, Onder; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Tokyay, Mustafa (2013-01-01)
The compressive strength development of calcium aluminate cement (CAC) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) blends that were subjected to different curing regimes are investigated. The blends had GGBFS/CAC ratios between 0% and 80%, by mass. Mortar specimens, prepared with a water:binder:sand ratio of 1:2:6, were subjected to seven different curing regimes and the compressive strengths were monitored up to 210 days. In order to understand the effect of temperature on compressive strength develop...
Production and characterization of magnesium oxychloride cement bricks for fine polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles
Özer, Mehmet Bülent; Öztürk, Abdullah (2011-09-01)
Magnesium oxychloride cement (MOC) polishing bricks developed for fine polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles were produced and characterized with respect to MgO/MgCl(2), molar ratio of 6/7, 7/1, and 8/1. X-Ray diffraction analysis revealed that the main crystalline phase formed in the bricks was 5Mg(OH)(2)center dot MgCl(2)center dot 8H(2)O. Density, abrasion resistance, compressive strength, and chemical durability in water of the MOC bricks were determined to provide information on polishing behavior. Po...
Silicon nanowire-silver indium selenide heterojunction photodiodes
KULAKCI, Mustafa; ÇOLAKOĞLU, Tahir; OZDEMİR, Baris; Parlak, Mehmet; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit (IOP Publishing, 2013-09-20)
Structural and optoelectronic properties of silicon (Si) nanowire-silver indium selenide (AgInSe2) thin film heterojunctions were investigated. The metal-assisted etching method was employed to fabricate vertically aligned Si nanowire arrays. Stoichiometric AgInSe2 films were then deposited onto the nanowires using co-sputtering and sequential selenization techniques. It was demonstrated that the three-dimensional interface between the Si nanowire arrays and the AgInSe2 thin film significantly improved the ...

Tayfun, Umit; KANBUR, YASİN; ABACI, UFUK; GÜNEY, HASAN YÜKSEL; Bayramlı, Erdal (2015-10-01)
Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) composites with fullerene loadings varying from 0.5 to 2 weight% were prepared by melt-mixing method. Nitric acid oxidation and silanization were applied to fullerene surface to improve interfacial interactions with TPU matrix. The influence of surface modifications of fullerene on mechanical, melt flow and electrical properties of TPU based composites were investigated. Incorporation of fullerene leads to nearly twofold increase in tensile strength and Young's modulus of th...
