Summary

Sanitaryware manufacturers have increased interest in improving production yields through pressure cast systems. Selective raw materials and rheology modifications can increase permeability characteristics of a sanitaryware slip composition for optimum performance in a pressure cast application. This study illustrates the performance characteristics of a high-permeability sanitaryware body that is rheologically modified through chemical additions and select specific gravity ranges.
