Ceramitalc No. 1

325 mesh talc

Oxide Weight110.53
Formula Weight118.16
If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

Recommended for use in all ceramic applications where a fine-ground talc will develop higher fired strength than coarser grades. Used as an auxiliary flux in electrical porcelain, hotel china and sanitaryware bodies to lower manufacturing temperatures without narrowing the firing range. In semivitreous dinnerware, it decreases the moisture expansion and increases the thermal expansin, contributing to improved resistnace to crazing in glazes dinnerware.
