Clay

Product Benefits

The properties of ball clays are down to their relatively high content of colloidal and organic matter.

UK clays

  • rheological stability
  • unfired strength
  • plasticity
  • workability

Ukrainian clays

  • Higher bending strength on both green and dried stage
  • White-fired colour
  • Low level of organic matter that allows fast firing cycle
  • High fusibility features, that can reduce the final porosity of ceramic body and increase the speed of the firing cycle with natural gas saving and more production yield

German clays

  • Low level of organic matter that allows fast firing cycle
  • Stable product along supplies which support the stability of production process
  • Good logistic network and supply chain: truck, train, barge and vessel

Russian clay

  • High Allumina clay with good plasticity
  • White firing colour
  • Stable product along supplies that support the stability of production process
