Ball Clay is fine textured clay used in the manufacture of ceramic and pottery applications. These clays are highly valued clays and owing to the properties of plasticity and strength they are used in ceramic bodies and in many other industries. Ball clays contain three principal minerals such as mica, quartz, and kaolinite. There are other additional minerals and some carbonaceous materials that are derived from ancient plants. The general properties of ball clay include moisture content and are available in different colors such as pink, different shades of black, brown and gray, and tan. Contamination minerals found in ball clay generally contain gypsum, pyrite, dolomite, titanium and iron oxides. Ball clay is used after mixing with non-plastic clay to impart the desired plasticity in porcelain, refractory materials, and pottery. Ball clay helps in the preparation of enamels, glaze and for transmitting a dense vitrified body.
