Dry M.O.R. (50% Silica) - MOR5

This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.


This is expressed in default units of psi (lb/square inch) and the clay material being tested is mixed with 50% silica. This is done with ball clays since their high plasticity cracks test bars during drying.
