Variations in Viscosity of Clay-Water Suspensions of Georgia Kaolins

  • LeRoy A. Woodward


The viscosity of clay-water suspensions is an important factor in determining commercial uses of Georgia Kaolins. Impurities, such as montmorillonite type minerals, in these basically kaolinite clays play a part in causing variations in viscosity. However, seemingly pure kaolinite clays also show variations which seem to be related to morphology and degree of crystallinity. Studies are underway to determine the various factors involved.
