Description: White burning plastic ball clay
Considered by some as a stoneware clay, it fires very white and is used in white firing porcelains and stoneware for its excellent plasticity.
The company describes it as a fine-grained engineered blend, well known for its excellent plasticity and fired properties. This consistent blend is suitable for a wide variety of forming processes, where a high degree of plasticity is required, such as dry pressing, jiggering, ram pressing and casting.
A fine particled highly plastic secondary clay used mainly to impart plasticity to clay and porcelain bodies and to suspend glaze, slips and engobe slurries.
Ball clays are abundant and very plastic and are used in all types of plastic forming bodies. They are not as white-burning or refractory as kaolins but lower in iron and fluxes than bentonites.
