The mechanical properties of flooring tiles fired in a conventional down draft kiln were compared with those produced commercially following the fast firing schedules. It has been observed that the conventional long firing operation favours dissolution of quartz, recrystallization of the secondary mullite and reduction in the amount of closed pores in the structure, thus enhancing the strength and toughness of the body as well as the resistance towards abrasion of the glazed surface.
