Glass ceramic glazes were developed in the system of CaO-SiO2 system. Compositions containing B2O3 and K2O as fluxing agent were melted at 1450°C and fritted. Glazes for porcelain tiles were formulated by using these frits. It was observed that wollastonite crystals were formed under industrial fast firing conditions with a peak temperature over 1200°C. Chemical and wear behaviours of the wollastonite containing glazes and the morphology of the crystals were examined.
