Replasticized palaeozoic/mesozoic clay rocks as well as Cenozoic clays and kaolins are indispensable basic raw materials for the brick and tile industry. They enable plastic shaping as well as an effective sintering process.
Plastically deformable clays represent the essential basic components of every brick mass. Furthermore, they are used as additional components in order to optimize several mass/product properties. The decisive characteristics of plastic clays are mainly affected by the type and proportion of the containing clay minerals.
