Summary

The use of talc, wollastonite, and high-sericite pyrophyllite as auxiliary flux and/or low-temperature maturing raw materials is nothing new. With the rising cost and the potential inavailability of energy sources, a review of properties and applications should be helpful in the reformulation of a lower temperature, faster firing body.
