This tool gives you an estimation of the right Sibelco materials to use based on your need.
Using the Tool
There are two ways to use the tool; either 'Quick Selection' or 'Guided Selection'.
A. Quick Selection
You are familiar with ceramic bodies and you already know the type of body you need for your production method.
Enter the desired properties into the four selection areas: - specify first if you are looking for ceramic bodies for raku firing - if not, select a range of temperatures with the sliders (each bar represents 20 degrees) - select the chamotte grain size and content that is right for your method - choose a selection of colours and whether you require a spotted finish.
B. Guided Selection
You’re unsure how the technical properties of the ceramic body will affect your end-product.
Answer six simple questions and let us show you which products would best suit you. You can select multiple boxes if you would like to keep your options broad.
This tool gives you a recommendation of the right materials to use based on your needs. The end results might change depending on the firing environment and the glaze.This tool represents a summary of our product range and is not a definitive list. Please contact Sibelco for more details.
