Influence of microstructure on firing colour of clays ...

1992-1-1 · Abstract. Firing colour of clays seems to be influenced by clay micro-structure. Non- or slightly expandable parallel arrangement and stiff particles, such as in K-bentonite, prevent Fe (II) oxidation and result in a yellow colour, little influenced by heating at 800°C. Big tactoids, as obtained with Mg, inhibit oxidation of Fe (II) or ...
