They are used to improve the viscosity of the clay slip.
Deflocculant in ceramics.
The most efficient compounds having deflocculant action for uses in ceramics are sodium silicate polyphosphates pyro tripoly tetrapoly etc and organic sodium and ammonium polyelectrolytes.
Following the development of single firing processes the need for atomised clay has led to the use of these processes.
By adding a deflocculant it is as if the solution has been made frictionless allowing one to easily mix with minimal water.
In ceramics there are a number of different deflocculants available.
The technique is important.
Our ceramic deflocculant is a kind of stpp replacement for ceramic body.
There are different varieties of darvan.
A deflocculant is used to lower the viscosity of a slip provided of course that the slip does not have so high a solids content that a deflocculant simply cannot thin it any more.
Thus the ceramic production volume is increased.
No single product acts according to all of the mechanisms described above therefore a mixture of various compounds is usually used whose combined.
Darvan 811 is a deflocculant that is similar to darvan 7 but is more.
They are white powder and packed in 25kgs per bag.
In fact what has happened is the electric charges of the clay particles have been rendered neutral by adding an alkaline or basic material to the mix reducing viscosity.
The treatment of clay by means of a wet grinding and deflocculation process is a widely used technique by the floor and wall tiles ceramic industry.
Water in ceramics water is the most important ceramic material it is present every body glaze or engobe and either the enabler or a participant in almost every ceramic process and phenomena.
Water in the slurry is reduced and the energy consumption of ball milling and spray drying is also reduced.
In ceramics this term refers to the flow and gel properties of a glaze or body suspension made from water and mineral powders with possible additives deflocculants modifiers.
Thixotropy thixotropy is a property of ceramic slurries.
A slip with a viscosity that is too high is said to be thick.
In addition our product can help make the granular composition of the powdery materials more.
Thixotropic suspensions flow when you want them to and then gel after sitting for a few moments.
Darvan is a liquid deflocculant that is often preferred for use with plaster molds because unlike some other deflocculants darvan does not degrade the plaster.
In ceramic industry glazes are often sprayed especially in sanitary ware.
