Ceramic Whitewares Training

L20 - Rheology - Fluid Properties Control in Ceramics

Wednesday 13 December 2023, Lucideon HQ, Staffordshire

Understanding the effect of fluid control in ceramics is vital in understanding the interactions between materials, water and chemicals used in the body and glaze preparation processes. By understanding rheology and these relationships, manufactures and suppliers of ceramic materials and products can change the characteristics of their ceramic bodies and glazes to optimise performance and production yields.
A basic understanding of body and glaze materials and applications is required.

Learning outcomes from the training include:

  • The role and need for rheology in setting up ceramic raw materials, bodies, and glazes.
  • Understanding of deflocculants
  • Measurement of rheological properties.
