Ball Clay Clays The Artesia Companies

Ball clays form a vital component in ceramic manufacturing. Kaolin (‘china clay’) produces a very white color when it is fired, but used alone it is brittle and weak and must be mixed with ball clay to produce a workable, malleable raw material. As a result of their sedimentary origin, raw ball clays have a

2011-1-1  The ceramic properties of plastic ball clays depend on the content of the clay minerals (especially I/S minerals) but also on the level of crystallinity of kaolinite and illite. These features influence grain size distribution and specific BET surface area of the clays.

Composition and ceramic properties of ball clays for

Ball clay is composed of mostly SiO 2 and Al 2 O 3, with low content of metal oxide impurities (eg. Fe 2 O 3 and TiO 2) (Galos, 2011). In terms of minerals, it is primarily composed of kaolinite,...

Ball Clay Imerys

Used with kaolin, feldspar and quartz in tableware and whiteware, ball clay confers high plasticity and a good white-fired color to the end product. In wall and floor tiles, ball clays are prized for their plasticity and bonding properties. In glazes and engobes they ensure a perfect finish.

Industrial clays: kaolin (china clay), ball clay and

Ball clay — is a plastic clay used in the ceramic industry to provide strength and malleability to a ceramic body prior to firing. Also, during firing, ball clay is one of the components which fuses to act as a ‘cement’ binding together the refractory, non-shrinking components of the ceramic body.

Ball clay is not a clay mineral in itself, but contains other minerals, primarily kaolinite (but also montmorillonite, halloysite, and illite). Mica and quartz are also present in substantial amounts (e.g. 10-20% for Tennessee ball clays). Ball clays are very plastic and much finer-grained than kaolins.
