Laboratory of physico-chemical characterization

The laboratory has the following main equipment:

  • Sample Preparation: jaw crusher, hammer mill, rolling-mill, planetary ball mill, mill jars, mixer, grain size by sieving, machining of test pieces, metallographic preparation.
  • Chemical and mineralogical analysis: determination of elements by EDXRF; identification and quantification of crystalline phases by XRD; carbonate content determination by calcimetry; determination of soluble sulfates, chlorides, fluorides and other elements of ceramic or environmental interest.
  • Physical characterization: scales, plasticimeter by indentation, universal test machines for mechanical strength, drying ovens, pilot drier, electric and gas kilns (muffle, high temperature, rapid cycling, pilot test), thermodilatometer, thermostatic baths, climatic chambers of aging and freeze-thaw cycles, colorimeter, determination of efflorescence, abrasion tester, friction pendulum.
