Notes

Albion Sperse is a coarse-grained, air-floated Georgia kaolin which is highly adaptable to slip-casting and filter press operations. It is unique for its high level of pure kaolinite and coarse particle distribution curve. It features excellent dispersion characteristics, low shrinkage, and a clean white fired color.

Albion Sperse is especially suitable for the manufacture of sanitary ware, oxide color pigments, high tension electric porcelain, and art pottery.
