NYAD M100 wollastonite

A high purity, coarse wollastonite recommended for ceramic bodies and glazes. The high purity combined with the low loss on ignition (LOI) enables glaze formation with reduced defects, improved thermal stability and a lower coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) while maintaining high fired brightness. The particle morphology adds reinforcing benefits to green bodies such as tiles and sanitaryware prior to firing.
