3C White Ball Clay


3C is our whitest burning and most refractory fireclay. It is plastic and a main ingredient in our H441G sculpture body.

3C stockpile at the Plainsman plant site.


3C is very refractory. The lignite that gives it the black raw color burns away during firing to reveal it's white color. It does contain impurities that produce specking during firing, especially in reduction, but these can be removed wet processing and screening.

3C fired test bars. From upper and lower section of the seam. Cone 10R top and 10 down to 8 below that.
