  • TITLE: More Value of Maroua Clay in the Formulation of Ceramic Products (Terracotta, Earthenware, Stoneware, Porcelain)

    ABSTRACT: As a part of the framework of the development of ceramic products, scientific research continues this idea that clays are essential vehicles for local development in Africa; and therefore they deserve to be made profitable. This scientific work has the advantage of providing a solution to the housing of the Sahel area. On the other hand, this study can effectively serve as the basis of data in the formulation of ceramics from clay Maroua, in the region of the Far North Cameroon, for a large-scale industrial operation. Thus, two samples of materials respectively KO1 and IP2 have been the subject of a preliminary chemical and mineralogical size rheological study. Once formed, the tubes containing the KO1 and PI2 materials have undergone heat treatment at successive temperatures of 900°C, 1000°C and 1100°C. The baked products obtained have also been the subject of a study of resonance, coloring density, loss on ignition, water absorption, linear shrinkage, porosity and mechanical compression.
