Potash Feldspar is the main vitrifying Agent in ceramic bodies, The majority of white ware bodies contain good proportions of feldspar. It acts as a flux. In the ceramic industry the flux is defined as that portion of the body which develops glass phase. The amount of flux in a ceramic body should be only in such a proportion as to develop the desired amount of vitrification. If excess of flux is added, the fired body becomes very glassy and consequently, brittle. The glass and ceramic industries are the major consumers of feldspar and account for 95% of the total consumption.

Sodium Feldspar is generally used for three purposes:
Quartz is the most abundant and most common mineral on the earth. It is found in almost every geological environment and also it is at least a component of almost every rock type. It has a hexagonal crystal structure and is made of trigonal crystallized silica. It is most varied in terms of varieties, colors and forms. The most important distinction between the types of quartz is that one is of macrocrystalline, which is individual crystal visible to the unaided eye, and the other is microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline varieties, aggregates of crystals visible only under high magnification. Chalcedony is the generic term-for crypto crystalline quartz. The transparent variety tends to be macro crystalline and the crypto crystalline varieties are either translucent or mostly opaque.
White Kaolin Clay or “Kaolin(Clay)” is a white, soft, plastic clay mainly composed of fine-grained plate-like particles. It is electrical conductivity. The larges applications for kaolin are the filling and coating of paper as well as the production of fine ceramics. Kaolin is also used in many other markets.
Ball clay is commonly consisting of kaolinite, mica, and quartz. Localized seams in the same deposit have variations in composition, including the quantity of the major minerals, accessory minerals and carbonaceous materials such as lignite. They are fine-grained and plastic in nature. These ball clays are manufactured as per the requirements provided by the customers.
We are specialized manufacturer of Premix Ramming Mass which contains binder-Boric Acid, mixed with Pre-heated Ramming Mass (no need to mix Boric Acid further). We recommend using our Ramming Mass (Premix), which will prove to be a good performer with its long lining life reducing cost of production.
Our Ramming Mass is a product of super snow white silica crystalline quartz having silica above 99% and manufactured under strict quality control. Proper check is exercised on magnetic process to assure iron free acidic ramming mass. Mixing of various quartz grains sizes in the exact proportion suitable for small, medium and large sizes of induction furnaces. It is suitable with high temperature.
Bentonite Powder is the important naturally occurring clays of great commercial importance possessing inherent bleaching properties. This is, therefore commonly called bleaching clays. Two types of bentonite are generally identified. One is called the swelling type or sodium bentonite, which has single water layer particles containing "Na" as the exchangeable ion. The other has double water layer particles with Ca as the exchangeable ion. It is called calcium bentonite or non-swelling type. "Na" or "Ca" is exchanged by "Mg" or "Fe". A third type of montmorillonite has been identified with zero water layer particles and is probably electro statically neutral. Calcium bentonite is usually referred to as fuller’s earth by a number authorities because chemically and also in physical properties it is identical to calcium-montmorillonite.
