Clay processing by deflocculation and wet grinding is a widely used procedure in the ceramic floor and wall tile industry. Our sodium silicates and metasilicates act as an effective, reliable and low cost deflocculant. They absorb onto the clay surface and causes the clay particles to repel one another. In this way, they reduce the viscosity of slips, making pumping easier, and reduce the energy costs of drying processes.
Effective and low cost deflocculant
Our sodium silicates and metasilicates act as an effective deflocculant. They absorb onto the clay surface and causes the clay particles to repel one another.
A part of the water in the clay slurry can be replaced by our sodium silicate or metasilicate to improve the liquid characteristics which results in an energy saving at the drying stage.
