100 Years of Made-to-Measure Quality for Clay, Chamotte, Soapstone and Feldspar

100 Years of Made-to-Measure Quality for Clay, Chamotte, Soapstone and Feldspar 

Since the founding of the company in 1921, Gottfried continues to develop as a competent raw materials partner for the ceramics industry. The array of raw and ground clays ranges from 20–43 % Al2O3 and fired colours from creamy white through yellow to red. Main buyers are the manufacturers of building ceramics and refractory products. 

With ARGOLITEC, Gottfried is now offering a clay mineral product line on the basis of high-purity and extremely fine-grained illites. The non-swelling phyllosilicates are predestined for plasticizing as well as binder and sintering aids for high-performance applications. 

The product range includes a wide assortment of chamottes that are optimized for specific applications. They have proven effective primarily for refractory products, fine fireclay sanitaryware, tiles and other building ceramics. Soapstone raw and calcined for steatite and cordierite bodies as well as crumbly bodies and contract processing complete the range. Pegmatite is extracted by Gottfried Feldspat and ground iron-free. The white-firing potash feldspar sand is used as a basic raw material for porcelain, sanitaryware and tiles. Special grades are used in light-coloured clinker bodies and as shortening material in roofing tiles. In the mineral grinding facility, combinations of other feldspars or mineral products, such as chamottes, quartz and wollastonite, can also be ground.
