A sodium polyacrylate dispersant used to deflocculate clay suspensions. Deflocculation results in a lowering of the viscosity of the clay suspension, which allows more solids (clay) to be introduced, thereby increasing the specific gravity and reducing the amount of water, absorbed by the plaster mold.
Materials used to control slurry properties of glazes and slips (vicosity, specific gravity).
