POTCLAYS CLAY ALTERNATIVES CHART

This chart has been compiled to help you to select an alternative clay body if your original choice is unavailable.
As always, testing is essential and we offer no guarantee that the suggested alternative/s will be suitable for your application.

Alternative 1 = clays which are similar in formulation and/or general properties.
Alternative 2 = clays which are further removed from the original in terms of formulation/properties.
