The Alumina that goes into our clay body to add strength and shock absorbency comes from Bauxite Rock, the mineral used to make aluminium.
Alumina or Aluminium Oxide is the chemical compound formula AL2O3. Alumina adds superior strength and whiteness and has shock absorbent qualities that combined with other components improves the products performance in use.
Our clay has 4 classifications of raw materials:
1)Alumina - Adds strength, shock absorbency and whiteness
2)China Clay - Adds whiteness
3)Ball Clay - Adds elasticity and flexibility
4)Fillers & fluxes - Occupies the space between particles
