To produce ceramic parts, refined powders of the basic raw materials are first thoroughly mixed with some water and small quantities of selected additives, normally metallic oxides that act as fluxing agents and inhibitors. Then the basic fabrication operation, such as pressing extrusion, or casting, takes place. Depending on the shape and dimensions, machining or grinding of the formed part also may be involved

1. Whitewares: These include, in addition to mechanical and electrical components, earthenware, china, tiles, and porcelain .

2. Glass: Glass is a mutual solution of fused, inorganic oxides cooled to a rigid condition without crystallization. It is made into a variety of hard, transparent objects .

3. Refractories: These include heat-resistant and insulating rocks, bricks, mortar, and fireclay .

4. Structural-clay products: They consist of bricks, tiles, and piping made from natural clays .

5. Porcelain enamels: These are ceramic coatings on cast-iron, steel, and other metal products .
