In this research, the use of borax sludge, which is generated in borax industry, as an additive in wall tile, was investigated. The wall tile samples were prepared by adding boron waste to the wall tile composition in the range of 2% -10%. The effect of boron waste on the physical and mechanical properties of wall tile was determined. The results obtained were compared with the control tile and Turkish Standards (TS). The boron waste addition up to 8 wt.% was found to improve the water
