Summary

Interest in lower fire sanitary ware bodies led to investigation of alumina chlorite as a flux. This material permitted development of lower firing bodies having casting and fired properties essentially identical with higher firing bodies. Chlorite was also useful in modifying higher firing bodies to allow faster firing.
