A low organic, low residue Ball Clay with unparalleled white-firing characteristics due to its high kaolintic content. This medium-grained, uniquely clean Ball Clay is especially suited for refractory and fast-firing applications.
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.
