The next step in ball clay evolution

The next step in ball clay evolution

As the world’s first genuinely semi-refined clay, the SanBlend® V Range opens new blending possibilities for sanitaryware manufacturers worldwide.

New possibilities…

…and a new standard for
sanitaryware manufacturers.

Extracted from the geologically unique source of the Bovey Basin and developed specifically for sanitaryware, the SanBlend® V Range offers a wide range of benefits, allowing manufacturers to have greater control of their production process.

Developed and tested specifically for sanitaryware

Fully tailored to your needs…

A key advantage of the new SanBlend® V Range is that it fills the previously unoccupied ‘middle zone’ between fully refined clays and standard shredded clays, creating a flexible option that can be tailored to your factory set up and also combined with local clays.

Crumble form equals greater savings…

The crumble form of the SanBlend® V Range delivers significant reductions in blunging times, resulting in enhanced production efficiencies and fewer bottlenecks. This also means valuable energy savings and reduced CO2 emissions.

Choose your grade.
Take control.

Developed and tested specifically for sanitaryware, the SanBlend® V Range is made up of four different grades, each designed for a specific cast rate. These grades can be combined to create a bespoke blend in tune with your manufacturing needs, giving you greater control over key production elements.

From a geologically unique source

The SanBlend® V Range is drawn from our renowned ball clay reserves of the Bovey Basin in southwest England. We’ve been extracting clays from this geologically unique deposit for over 300 years, today exporting our products to sanitaryware customers worldwide.

And recent major investment in our ball clay operations has secured a long-term supply of materials from this deposit, in excess of another 100 years.
