These are manufactured from a clay mass with or without admixtures of colouring impurities by moulding and subsequent burning until baked, up to about 1300 °C. The clay should be highly plastic with lean admixtures and fusing agents to lower the melting point. These are moulded in machines of the auger or plunger type and are commonly burned in continues kilns. Specifications Flat Terracing Tiles (IS: 2690): The flat terracing tiles may be hand moulded or machine moulded. 5. Hand moulded tile is marked with symbol H and the machine moulded tile with symbol M.

On the Basis of Types Solid: Small holes not exceeding 25 per cent of the volume of the brick are permitted; alternatively, frogs not exceeding 20 per cent of the total volume are permitted. Perforated: Small holes may exceed 25 per cent of the total volume of the brick. 14 Building Materials Hollow: The total of holes, which need not be small, may exceed 25 per cent of the volume of the brick. Cellular: Holes closed at one end exceed 20 per cent of the volume. Note: Small holes are less than 20 mm or less than 500 mm2 in cross section.

Due to the considerable mass, labourconsuming manufacture, erection and drainage problems, and appreciable transportation charges, roofing tiles have lost their importance and are recommended locally. The various types of roofing tiles in common use are shown in Fig. 16. Floor tiles are extensively used in houses and industrial buildings. These are durable and impervious to water, resist abrasion well and wash easily. White burning and red burning clays, fire clays and shales are used in making tiles for floor surfaces.
