Ceramic and Glass Laboratory

Ceramic and Glass Laboratory is a laboratory under Ceramics Research Unit, doing research and development on ceramic materials, glass and geopolymer, which focusing on environmental friendly materials to reduce energy consumption in the manufacturing process. The research topics include the low temperature ceramic body and lead-free glaze, utilization of industrial waste such as; bottom ash, glass cullet and tile waste to various innovative materials i.e. granite-designed decorative tile, geopolymer brick and light-weight composite brick. In addition, the lab also provides services to industries by developing raw material, body and glaze databases, establishing laboratory for quality control in process, being a consultant and solving problems of product by analyzing, testing as well as using the management technology such as clean technology to improve productivity and reduce cost in process.
