GSPT - Frit Softening Point PCE 21

A fine white firing, kaolinized sand, suitable as a body constituent to diversify particle size, add texture, improve drying and reduce plasticity. This material has very low plasticity and cannot be used by itself. It is a very unique material, not available anywhere else that we know of.
