Summary

Natural raw materials such as clays, talcs, feldspars, quartz, limestone, and dolomite are still used in many advanced high-technology ceramics. The need to control purity and chemistry, as well as the need to reduce residual radioactivity has forced the switch from natural to synthetic raw materials.
