Clay-based saggars, commonly used in the pottery industries in India, can not stand more than 5 to 6 thermal cycles. With a view to understanding the different parameters controlling the thermal shock resistance property of fired ceramics, b!ldies containing 50 cordierite grog-50 clay, 50 clay grog-50 clay and 50 cl�y grog- 50 cordierite were prepared with variations in grog s1zes. The strength was measured after each thermal cycle. From the studies, it could be inferred that by using preformed cordierite, much longer life would be assured and a method for evaluating thermal endurance of fired ceramics could be standardised. © 1981 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
