Pigments and Powders

Powders and Pigments

The manufacture of pigments and powders often involves a pre-sintering process to achieve a consistent colour or other key physical properties.
The most effective way to achieve this is to load the material into a refractory box known as a saggar. These can vary in size and shape depending on the application. Kiln fill optimisation can be achieved using this method along with reduction in waste.
