Clays and Colloidal Silicas

  • Jan-Erik Otterstedt
  • Dale A. Brandreth


Clays can lay claim to being the starting point for fine particle technology in the history of mankind. Their use in constructing shelters and in pottery manufacture far predates recorded history. Their particular crystalline structure which confers the plastic-like rheological behavior necessary for forming bricks, plugging holes, and making pottery, together with their permanence and ready availability all led inevitably to their extreme importance in mankind’s struggle to survive and prosper.
