Liquid Raw Materials
Liquid “N” brand Sodium Silicate is used as a major deflocculant in preparing slip. It reduces the amount of water needed, therefore reducing shrinkage. This is a pure sodium silicate and must be mixed with water to a 50/50 solution for most casting bodies.
A deflocculant that is user friendly because it has a wider deflocculation curve. Does not deteriorate molds as actively as does sodium silicate.
Similar in use and composition to Darvan #7, but recommended for deflocculating red slips and high iron slips.
A pure liquid (non-detergent) soap separator, used as a release when casting plaster/gypsum into a plaster mold, and to prevent plaster/gypsum products from adhering to most porous surfaces. PureLube may be used full strength or diluted with water.
A liquified binder, thickener, suspension and brushing medium made of an organic cellulose gum. Also used to increase plasticityof clay bodies.
A liquified cobalt compound often used to color white clays and glazes with a blue tint. Additionally, it is used as a decolorizer in clay bodies.
A sodium polyacrylate dispersant used to deflocculate clay suspensions. Deflocculation results in a lowering of the viscosity of the clay suspension, which allows more solids (clay) to be introduced, thereby increasing the specific gravity and reducing the amount of water, absorbed by the plaster mold.
Used to set and harden the surface of glaze and overglaze to facilitate faster glazing procedures
Very similar to PureLube.
Sets the poise (reducing settling, running, etc.) in dipping and spraying glazes. Used as an oxidizing agent in zircon and titania opacified enamels.
