If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.
DENS - Density (Specific Gravity) 2.63
PSHP - Particle Shape (1-7 microns) Thin flat plate
GEBR - GE Brightness 85-92%
P325 - % Passing 325 Mesh Wet 99.95+%
MOIP - Moisture Content - Powder 0.25-0.5%
MDPS - Median Particle Size (Microns) 1.4 microns
pHPW - pH for dry powder 5.5

Conventionally calcined kaolin.
Burgess Icecap K, Iceberg and No. 30 calcined kaolins differ slightly in the pH, brightness, #325 residue, % free moisture. None of the differences should have significant effects on ceramic glaze and body applications.
However their Optiwhite thermo optic kaolins have the same chemistry but have an amorphous particle shape and lower specific gravity.
