Résumé / Abstract

Ceramics play an important role in the Brazilian economy, with a participation estimated in 1% of the GNP ( Gross National Product), corresponding to about 6 billion dollars. The abundance of natural raw-materials, alternative energy sources, and the availability of practical technologies within the industrial equipments, caused a rapid evolution of the Brazilian industries, and several types of products from the various ceramic segments attained international quality levels, with singnificative exportation. The ceramic sector is very diverse and can be divided into the following classes: heavy clay ceramics, wall and floor tiles, refractory materials, sanitaryware, porcelain electric insulators, tableware, decorative china, ceramic filters and reservoirs for domestic use, technical ceramics, and thermal insulators. All these segments exist in Brazil, in a higher or lower stage of development and production capacity. Moreover, there are also manufacturers of synthetic glazes and colorants, plaster of Paris, equipments and some auxiliary chemicals. In this paper, an overview of the main Brazilian ceramic segments is presented, excluding the glass, cement, and lime sectors, which, despite being ceramic, are genrally treated in separate.
