During the formation of sanitary tools, the sodium silicate is being added to work on the continuation of homogeneity and elasticity of mixed ceramic product during the disposal of water, where it is important to keep the mixed ceramic product to a certain amount of flexibility and homogeneity while decreasing the water to get a new product.
How it works
When water is added to various types of clay, the water becomes oriented between the clay particles to form a strong bond. When a polyelectrolyte such as Ceramsil is introduced, ion exchange or ion adsorption occurs on the clay particle surface, creating like electrical charges between particles. This charge effect causes the particles to repel one another, thus fluidizing the system and allowing it to flow more freely.
