Summary

A study was conducted examining the effect of CaSO, MgSO, Na2SO, and Al2(SO)3 additions on the time-dependent gelation behavior of a sanitaryware slip. Both Brookfield and Gallenkamp viscometer results indicate that the different cation associated with the sulfate addition resulted in changes in viscosity and varying degrees of gel. Results were correlated with casting data and a comparison was made to production slips.
