Ball clays or plastic clays are fine grained, highly plastic sedimentary clays, which fire to a light or near white colour. They are used mainly in the manufacture of ceramic whiteware and are valued for their key properties of plasticity, unfired strength and their light fired colour.
We operate two quarries for ball clay. The technical properties for each our attached as under:
Mokha Clay is a general grade clay with properties suited to form a ceramic body. Detailed specifications are attached.
Deh Clay is specially high in MOR strength and plasticity. Detailed specifications are attached.
