A model has been presented to describe slip casting of a porcelain whiteware body. The separate contributions of particle physics and interparticle chemistry to rheology and slip performance were described. This model can be applied to any wet-forming process of any ceramic powder simply by varying the powder and slip characteristics.
The model has been tested in plant environments which originally used extremely poor casting clays, and then improved to excellent performance. Some of the model is speculative and awaits the results of research into structure predictions by fractal analysis.
