Fired sanitary scrap after fine grinding has been incorporated in a standard vitreous sanitaryware body and the influence of its addition on the rheological and thermo-mechanical properties, vitrification behaviour and microstructure has been investigated. The incorporation of 5-10 wt% scrap resulted in about 8% increase in flexural strength, reduction in vitrification temperature by ~30°C and broadening of vitrification range of body by 40° to 90°C. This has also resulted in significant improvement of rheological properties of the casting slip at a reduced electrolyte demand without altering the unfired strength of body mixes.
