SOKA kaolins are used in tile bodies and have excellent pressing qualities. After firing they are remarkably white due to their low colouring-oxide content. They are the preferred choice for manufacturing white body tiles and for glazing, given that they are extremely white and fine.
SOKA provides standard and customised kaolin grades which are used in bodies and are internationally renowned for their setting and casting properties. They are an industry reference for traditional and high-pressure casting.
Kaolin is a natural element whose alumina and potassium levels provide excellent stability at high temperatures. SOKA kaolins are used in the composition of refractories for kilns, boilers, and as heat shields in many industries.
Kaolins act as natural suspension agents in engobe and glazing formulations and as a source of alumina for glazing and frits.
SOKA kaolins are renowned for their high degree of whiteness, low sedimentation and impurity level, and prevent the formation of surface defects such as pinholes and spots.
