Abstract

"The object in view in this work was to study the effect of the addition of bentonite on the pressure transmission of dry pressed ware, consisting of plastic fire clay. It was hoped that the bentonite would improve the transmission of the pressure to a noteable extent, forming a stronger, more evenly pressed block than has before been accounted for. This would facilitate the dry pressing of block that tended to crumble and disrupt from excessive pressure, allowing the ware to be pressed harder, and therefore making a more dense product"--Reasons For Investigation, page 4-5.
