Ravenscrag Slip 1900F Calcined

Silty fusible low iron clay

Oxide Weight344.76
Formula Weight344.76

The chemistry of this material is slightly different than for raw Ravenscrag Slip (it does not lose any weight on firing, so it supplies more of each of the oxides to the fired glaze, 9% more). This chemistry provided here assumes complete calcination (to at least cone 04). However there is an issue. The page at ravenscrag.com recommends roasting to only 1000F, at that temperature it looses only 3% weight on firing.

Another issue is particulates. When calcined at 1900F, particles sinter together into larger ones, requiring glaze ball milling. But at 1000F this does not occur.
