In Brazil, it is estimated that there are more than 6,000 ceramic industries operating in various technological levels. With the increase in the consumer market demands, it is essential to carry out studies to characterize the raw materials and the development and improvement of ceramic products. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize the clay minerals present in a clay sample from the Visconde do Rio Branco city in Minas Gerais - Brazil, using chemical analysis, XRD, TGA and DTA. The results of the analysis were presented and discussed about the potential application of the material based on the Winkler diagram.
