The effect of fly ash additions on the mechanical properties of porcelainised stoneware tile composition has been investigated. Fly ash additions in the range of 0–40 wt% have been added in to the tile body composition, wet milled, spray dried, shaped and fired at 1250°C. The MOR strength improved with increasing fly ash content and reached maximum when 25–30 wt% fly ash used, and with greater additions it decreased. A linear correlation between strength development and mullite formation was found. The tiles with 25 wt% fly ash had improved bending strength, abrasion resistance and hardness compared to the conventional tiles and conform to all other properties at an EN standard specification.
