GSPT - Frit Softening Point 2970F

A medium-fine ground fireclay. A good choice for economy and consistency.
It burns yellow buff in oxidation and quite brown in reduction firing (partially due to its soluble salts content). Its overall appearance is comparable to Pine Lake fireclay, although it is cleaner.
