UPF Kaolin Clay

Wilco UPF is finer grained kaolin and can be employed in a ceramic formulation where higher permeability type kaolin is not required. It has excellent suspension qualities and lends good film strength to ceramic engobes and glazes of all temperature ranges.  Wilco UPF also meets the requirements of filler applications where a dry ground processed kaolin can be employed.
