Project Description

Ceramic Laboratory

NOTIO’s Ceramic Laboratory is accredited by ENAC (Nº: 1287/LE2422) in agreement with the standard UNE EN 17025, to make quality control tests of fired clay ceramic products used in the construction sector.

These tests are required by a regulation requirement of the product (CE marking), by an environmental requirement of the manufacture process (CO2 emissions control) or by a quality mark (e.g. AENOR).

Besides normative tests, the Ceramics Laboratory is used to perform both services and Research and Technological Development projects in the following areas:

  • Pathologies, architectural and architectonic heritage.
  • Quality of ceramic and building materials (improvement of technological properties of ceramic materials applied in construction, nanotechnology and new ceramic applications, etc.).
  • Circular Economy (valorization of residues and by-products, optimization of energy consumption in the manufacturing processes, etc.).
  • Energy efficiency, Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
  • Development of bioclimatic ceramic construction systems.

 Test and analysis developed:

  • General.
  • Ceramic pavers.
  • Tiles.
  • Ceramic blocks.
  • Ceramic clay blocks lightened.
  • Cows.
  • Brick faces.
  • Ceramic bricks.
  • Large format bricks.
  • Ceramic boards.
  • Roof tiles.
