For electrical porcelain, chemical and metallurgical (laboratory ware and catalysts) and mechanical and thermal (abrasives and grinding media) ceramics, we’ll work with you to provide materials with the desired:

  • Plasticity and shape retention
  • Stability and dimensional accuracy
  • Tensile and compressive strength
  • Resistance to abrasion and chemical attack
  • Thermal shock resistance and stability

Minerals for body

The choice of body raw materials is driven by the properties desired during the key manufacturing stages.  Our minerals are designed to enhance the properties of the final products through:

  • High strength and plasticity
  • Improved fired stability and thermal shock
  • Improved product resistance to abrasion
  • Improved product resistance to chemical attack

We work with our customers to understand their goals before developing an optimum combination of body raw materials, including:

  • Plastic clay
  • Kaolin
  • Nepheline syenite
  • Potash feldspar
  • Prepared ceramic bodies
