Properties of three clays, two from the District of Bikaner and one from Banner, Rajasthan were studied both from mineralogical and ceramic points of view with the objective of evaluating the same for their suitability in the whiteware industry. The study included examination of the chemical, mineralogical and physical characteristics of the clays along with the forming behaviour of the bodies by slip casting, throwing and jigger jolley. The clays were also examined for their suitability for electrical porcelain. The three clays did not appear to be suitable for the manufacture of white table ware; but the same, when considered individually with respect to other types of ceramic ware appeared to be quite promising. © 1977, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
