FELDSPAR Natural fluxing agents for whiteness and superior translucency for a range of ceramic applications.
Feldspars play vital roles during firing as they are used as the main vitrifying or fluxing agent in ceramic bodies. Using feldspar in ceramics production strengthens and ensures the durability of fired bodies.
Imerys feldspars are characterized by their high alkali content and low iron and titanium content, which are essential for whiteness and translucency in tableware and sanitaryware
Through a stringent control of the production processes, Imerys is able to design feldspars that provide tableware manufacturers with the assurance that the fusibility of the product satisfies technical requirements.
Imerys can assist customers in ensuring that the proportions of feldspar in the body recipe are exactly right to avoid over-vitrification during firing.
Imerys mines and processes feldspar at its operations in France, Turkey, Thailand and India. We also offer high quality feldspar for ceramics through our joint venture, The Quartz Corporation, in Spruce Pine, NC.
