Abstract
Physico-chemical and mineralogical studies (X-ray, DTA, IR spectroscopy) were carried out to find utilization of a black clay from Rajpardi in Gujarat in ceramic industries. It was noticed that the Rajpardi clay contains predominantly kaolinite having characteristics like Bikaner ball clay. Attempts were also made to use the clay as a substitute of Bikaner ball clay in the manufacture of ceramic products to make it cost effective, particularly for the ceramic industries in and around Gujarat. The results show that Rajpardi clay can be suitably used along with Bikaner ball clay in the manufacture of ceramic wares.
