    A wide range of carbonates are used in ceramics and each of these has its own thermal history. Within that is a range where they decompose to give off...

  • (Glossary) Carbon Burnout

    Ceramic bodies and glazes contain materials that release carbon as they decompose on heating. Clays, gums, plasticizers are examples. These can still be burning out at higher temperatures than most people realize (cone 04 or higher). That burning generates gases, if glazes are beginning to melt befo...
