Production and characterization of magnesium oxychloride cement bricks for fine polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles

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. Polishing of the tiles was accomplished both in laboratory scale and in online industrial scale. Polishing performance of the bricks was evaluated in terms of average roughness and gloss of the tile surface and of abrasive brick consumption occurred during polishing. The roughness of the tile surface and abrasive brick consumption decreased but the gloss increased when MgO/MgCl(2), ratio in the MOC brick is increased. Scanning electron microscope examinations revealed that the MOC bricks composed of MgO/MgCl(2) ratio of 7/1 had the best qualifications in terms of polishing performance.

Production and characterization of magnesium oxychloride cement based polishing bricks for polishing of ceramic tiles
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...
Production and characterization of yttria stabilized zirconia ceramic blocks for dental applications
Kaplan, Melis; Öztürk, Abdullah; Park, Jongee; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
Dense zirconia ceramic blocks were produced by pressureless sintering at temperatures down to 1350- 1450 oC for dental applications. The effect(s) of integration of cold isostatic pressing (CIP’ing) to the production procedure of the zirconia blocks was researched by applying 80, 100, and 150 MPa isostatic pressure. The effect of color infiltration solutions (NiCl2 and MoCl3 solutions) on color and low temperature degradation properties of zirconia was investigated. Tetragonal to monoclinic phase transforma...
Silicon carbide particle embedded magnesium oxychloride cement composite bricks for polishing of porcelain stoneware tiles
Öztürk, Abdullah (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 abr...
Synthesis and characterization of waterborne and phosphorus containing flame-retardant polyurethane coatings
Çelebi, Funda; Aras, Leyla; Gündüz, Güngör; Department of Chemistry (2002)
In this study, phosphorus containing flame retardant water-dispersed polyurethane paints were produced by incorporating different amounts of phosphorus compound onto the polyurethane main chain. The novel flame retardant compound was synthesized in three steps. In the first step, monobenzalpentaerythritol was produced from benzaldehyde and pentaerythritol. In the second step, phosphorylation of monobenzal pentaerythritol was performed. Final step includes the formation of phosphorus phenyl dihydroxyl from t...

Celebi, F; Aras, L; Gündüz, Güngör; Akhmedov, IM (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-09-01)
Phosphorus-containing flame retardant water-dispersed polyurethane coatings were produced by incorporating different amounts of a phosphorus compound onto the polyurethane main chain. The novel phosphorus containing compound (phosphorus phenyl dihydroxy) was synthesized in three steps using benzaldehyde, pentaerythritol, phenyl phosphonic dichloride, and acetic acid.
