Raw Materials

Raw Materials The materials available through this web site are in grades of purity which are most useful in the ceramic industry. Some of them are not "pure" compounds, and therefore, we are unable to warrant the consistency of these materials from batch to batch. We urge you to make thorough tests every time a new material or lot is purchased.

Select a category to view raw materials by group or go directly to the raw material you want by picking it from the full list below.
