Three plastic fireclays, namely, Mohuamilan and Chittorpur from Bihar and Barachatarma from West Bengal have been taken to study their physico-chemical properties which include chemical analysis, plasticity, particle-size analysis, base exchange capacity, differential thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, drying and firing characteristics etc. Results indicate that Barachatarma clay is better than the other two clays with respect to plastic property. Owing to the undesirable fired colour, none of the clays can be used where the colour of the product governs the quality of the same. © 1983 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
