Summary

A sanitary-ware body reformulation involved replacing a fine-grained kaolin while maintaining its casting properties and an unusually low pyroplastic deformation. The literature gave a number of alternative approaches, but economics dictated use of a coarse, local kaolin. Sand-ground coarse kaolin provided the desired qualities.
