Clay based glazes

R. A. Haber, C. Cornetto

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The effects of natural and synthetic montmorillonitic clay additions on the properties of ceramic bodies and glazes were analyzed. Viscosity, drying time, and tendency to crack tests were conducted to determine the effects of modifier addition on glaze performance. It was found that the presence of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) mixed with the clay additives increased the drying time and the crack resistance of the glazes. It was also found that the drying time of the 1.72 specific gravity glazes correlated well with glaze viscosity.
