Alternate Names: Potassium chloride, KCL, Silvin, Silvine
Description: Soluble source of K2O
This can be used as an alternative to NaCl in the salt glaze process.
Materials that source Na2O, K2O, Li2O, CaO, MgO and other fluxes but are not feldspars or frits. Remember that materials can be flux sources but also perform many other roles. For example, talc is a flux in high temperature glazes, but a matting agent in low temperatures ones. It can also be a flux, a filler and an expansion increaser in bodies.
