Highly Plastic Fine Grained

Alternate Names: Tile 6, Tile#6 Kaolin, #6 Tile kaolin

Oxide Weight231.04
Formula Weight267.10
If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

6 Tile is an airfloated kaolin with bright firing properties yet highly plastic. It thus offers high green strength for superior jiggering and wet processing properties.

Particle size, % < 2 microns 60
325 mesh screen residue, % max 0.5
M.B.I. (meq/100g) 9.8
Specific Surface Area (sq-m/g) 20.0
pH, 20% solids 6.5

Tile #6 Kaolin is the most plastic kaolin available in North America

Tile #6 Kaolin is the most plastic kaolin available in North America

It is a designer kaolin, they add bentonite to the material during manufacture. This vase is made from the pure material, it is very thin and light. The fired color is lighter than what you get when you add common raw bentonite to other less plastic kaolins (to bring them to the same degree of plasticity).
