Masterfil Kaolin

Oxide Weight233.70
Formula Weight268.96
If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

A general purpose air floated kaolin of good casting properties. It is an appropriate selection for mechanical forming applications where more plasticity is desirable and fired color is not critical.
