Ball Clay


Ball Clay

  • Ball clay is not a clay mineral in itself, but contains other minerals, primarily kaolinite.
  • Ball clays are used in ceramic bodies (porcelains, stonewares and earthenwares, casting slips, pressing bodies) because of their plastic nature combined with high firing temperature. Ball clays have very high dry shrinkage combined with high green strength and slow drying.
