Discontinued. This is is the successor to the old G200 (see G200 Feldspar for more details). It is higher in potassium and alkali levels. The manufacturer is recommending a 3:7 blend of sodium feldspar (Minspar 200) with the new G-200HP feldspar to match the old G200 chemistry (if that is important for your application). Laguna Clay Company marketed two feldspars and labels the bags "G-200 New Potash" (this material) and "G200 Old Blend" (the 3:7 mix). They went on to import Mahavir feldspar when this one was discontinued.

Sept 2013: See the G-200 Feldspar page, the ore body of potassium feldspar will run out during 2013.

Average particle size: 13.3 micro-meters
Specific surface area: (sq-m/g) 1.21
Sieve analysis: 0.5% on 200 mesh, 5.0% on 325 mesh.

Old Blend Feldspar. What is that?

Old Blend Feldspar. What is that?

Laguna Clay sells a substitute for the no-longer-available G200 feldspar. G200 HP is higher in K2O and lower in CaO than G200, Minspar is an ideal addition since it's K2O is much lower and CaO much higher. A 7:3 G200HP:Minspar mix produces a chemistry that is remarkably close (on paper) to G200. They label this blend "Old Blend". They also list a product called "New Potash" in their pricelist, that is G200 HP.
