Combination of Particle Shapes to Enhance Sanitaryware Production Yields
The ceramic sanitaryware industry is constantly increasing its competitiveness
based on technology changes. The move from plaster casting, such as bench, battery or capillary casting techniques to high pressure casting using polymer moulds results in a more demanding sanitaryware production. Most manufacturers use various combinations of the above techniques with different level of automation to produce their full range of pieces. Some are now pressure casting heavy, complex, and truly one-piece water closets using automated de-moulding. In this environment, raw material properties and consistency are key to manufacturers who create more complex formulations to obtain the maximum benefit from each technique.
