Ceramics can be described as one of the great inventions in ancient my country. Many countries regard Chinese ceramic art as a priceless treasure. Now, there are many ceramic production and processing factories that can be experienced by yourself. Although you can’t make that priceless treasure, you can at least make some small household objects, such as ceramic flower pots. So what is the production method of ceramic flower pots? Come and experience it in advance.
Ceramic flower pot production process
In the process of making ceramic flowerpots, the most important thing is the process of firing ceramics. The production of ceramics itself is a very complicated process. You must know that ceramics are made of ceramic pigments and mud. A layer of alumina is evenly sprayed on the surface of the ceramics, so as to avoid the color difference during the high temperature baking in the kiln. During the firing process, the temperature of the finished product reaches about 1100 degrees. Moreover, the thinner the ceramic is, the more delicate it is, but this process is very complicated, which also increases the number of defective ceramics. Moreover, when firing ceramics, it should be noted that the contact surface of the ceramic bottom should not be sprayed with alumina to prevent the contact surfaces from sticking together and causing unnecessary losses.
This is the general process of firing ceramics, and the process of making ceramic flowerpots is roughly the same. Prepare mud and paint, make the mud into the shape of the flowerpot you want, spray it with your favorite paint, and then put it into the ceramic In the kiln, it is fired at 1300 degrees for 7-8 hours, and then adjusted to 1700 degrees for 10-12 hours. In this way, the production of ceramic flower pots can be completed.
