NC-4 Feldspar

Alternate Names: NC4 Feldspar, Spruce Pine #4 Spar

Oxide Weight554.19
Formula Weight554.69
Enter the formula and formula weight directly into the Insight MDT dialog (since it records materials as formulas).
Enter the analysis into an Insight recipe and enter the LOI using Override Calculated LOI (in the Calc menu). It will calculate the formula.
DENS - Density (Specific Gravity) 2.65
SADR - Sieve Analysis Dry 170: +200 mesh: 1.92%, +325: 11.97 200: 0.7%, 6.6% 250: 0.06%, 1.5%
SAMG - Surface Area (m2/gm) 170: 1.21, 200: 1.29, 250: 1.48
BDLB - Bulk Density lbs/cu. ft. (Packed) 62 loose, 74 packed
AVSC - Apparent Viscosity (cps) 170: 14.1, 200: 12.6, 250: 10.6

NC-4 feldspar is a high quality sodium / potassium / calcium aluminum silicate ground to 170, 200 and 250 mesh, for ceramic applications. Carefully beneficiated and controlled for quality, NC-4 feldspar offers high alkali content and low iron oxide content per unit of alumina. Its various grinds are tailored for specific applications.

Now called Minspar 200.
