Summary

An investigation was made on the effect of bone ash washing on the viscoelastic properties of bone china body with dynamic stress rheometer. It was found that washing bone ash could improve the plasticity of bone china body significantly. The decrease of phosphate concentration and pH in bone ash by washing may account for the improvement of plasticity. It was also found that washing bone ash could narrow the variation in the body behavior due to the wide distribution of soluble ions concentrations in different bone ash batches.
