Relation of Viscosity of Kaolin-Water Suspensions to Montmorillonite Content of Certain Georgia Clays
The viscosity of certain kaolin—water systems was correlated with natural montmorillonite content of the kaolin, as determined quantitatively by the Hinckley—Bates (1960) strontium-exchange technique. Transition from low viscosity to high viscosity occurred when montmorillonite content of the Georgia clays studied exceeded 5%.
