Summary

Developing a sanitary ware formula for optimum performance involves complete understanding of the required objective. Characterization of the raw materials, especially ball clays, plays a key role in predicting performance of the formula. Rheology qualities of a system and knowledge of the influencing factors bear equal importance in maximizing the total performance of the composition. This paper highlights a practical approach to balancing the performance qualities of a sanitary ware slip.
