Ball Clay: A member of kaolinite family, Ball Clay is renowned for its plasticity and green strength. They consists varying proportions of kaolinite, mica and quartz, with small amounts of organic matter and other minerals, and are commercially values because they increase the workability and strength of various ceramic bodies and have white or near white firing characteristics. Ball clay is processed to minimize the levels of coarse particles. This enhances better workability and higher strength. Applications : It forms a major part of many ceramic applications, including sanitary ware, tiles, table wares and to an increasing extent non-ceramic applications like functional fillers and advanced application for example technical ceramics.
