BONE CHINA
Bone China is generally regarded as the finest form of tableware available. All high quality Bone China dinnerware and tableware typically contain 46% to 52% of calcined Bone Ash, it is this bone ash which imparts the high degree of whiteness and translucency exhibited by Fine Bone China. The use of Waterground Ceramic Flux in a Bone China Body recipe ensures constant colour, size and translucency of the Bone China product.
Traditionally one of the most used grades of fluxes in Fine Bone China dinnerware and tableware and other ceramic bodies and glazes is Waterground Cornish Stone.
 
BONE CHINA BODY (BCB 50)
Production: Using the same top quality raw materials as supplied to the larger bone china manufacturers, Global produce bodies for those customers without their own body preparation facilities. Body BCB 50 incorporates de-fluorinated Cornish Stone to reduce significantly fluorine emissions to the atmosphere during firing.
Form: Available in press cake or pugged rolls.
