After extracting the clay, naturally transformed by the atmospheric agents, from the clay pit, it is mixed, milled, sifted and stored in a silo where it ages for from 2 to 3 years to guarantee the quality and resistance of the finished product.
1. 'il pastone - the mix': the right quantity of plastic clay, well-rounded and compact, to make a brick or tile.
2. 'pressatura - pressing': a particular pressing for each tile or brick guarantees the correct compactness.
3. 'allisciatura - smoothing': smoothing first with a straight edge and then by hand perfects the pressing process.
4. 'posa del mattone - laying the tiles': the wet tiles or bricks are thrown on the ground where they will stay throughout the drying process.
All the Sugaroni tiles and bricks are left to dry naturally, at which time they are trimmed, selected and turned around so as to furnish a properly dried perfectly level product.
After 5 continuous days of firing with a peak temperature of 1057° C, the Sugaroni products become excellent resounding bricks and tiles.
