|Abstract||Two new ceramics based on 60 wt% secondary raw material (SRM) derived from pre-treated municipal solid waste incinerator bottom ashes and 40% refractory clay were studied. The thermal and densification behaviours of the ceramic batches were evaluated by DTA-TG and dilatometry techniques, respectively. After that, degree of sintering at different temperatures and soaking times was evaluated in details, measuring the open and closed porosities (by gaspycnometry), the linear shrinkage and the water absorption. The chemical and mineralogical compositions were evaluated with ICP and XRD analysis while the microstructure of final samples was observed by SEM. The results highlighted that the new ceramics are characterized by narrow sintering ranges in the interval 1210-1240°C. In addition, the specimens demonstrated low water absorption and high crystallinity, leading to very good mechanical characteristics. These initial results elucidate the opportunity to obtain new low-cost ceramics with elevate properties, based on huge amount of SRM.|
