Summary

Ceramic usage of lithium in North America historically has been limited to special applications where its imparted properties of extreme thermal stability, high fluxing capability, or improved viscosity made it the best choice. However, its potential exceeds these benefits. This paper summarizes what lithium does for ceramics and includes some information on North America's only lithium mineral producer.
