We offer a comprehensive range of tableware plaster formulations for slip casting, jiggering, jolleying, ram press and case moulds with dedicated products adapted to specific customer requirements.
Tableware manufacture is unique due to the diversity of the ceramic clay bodies used for the various processes developed over many years.
Thanks to its experience in industrial plaster for tableware, Saint-Gobain Formula has optimised and fine-tuned formulations to cover every need: plaster for bone china, plaster for earthenware, plaster for stoneware and plaster for terracotta.
Attain highest quality of ceramic tableware pieces
Best value for money for your plaster process, with 100 years of experience in the industry
Excellent supply chain and technical expertise to support your industrial processes
We supply controlled porosity plaster for slip casting. This is a traditional process to manufacture moulds for the ceramic industry.
In slip casting, the porosity of the plaster mould absorbs the water in the ceramic slurry, taking the shape of the mould and creating the cake.
The thickness of this "skin" is proportional to the time for which it is allowed to form.
Saint-Gobain Formula is able to control the porosity and the absorption capacity of the moulds, allowing manufacturers to extend production speed and mould life.
Each of our local manufacturing sites supplies a wide range of tailor-made solutions adapted to every type of clay such as vitreous, bone china, fine fired clay or refractories.
Our solutions are suitable for slip casting, solid casting or hollow casting with several castings per day, long mould life and perfect reproduction of details.
JOLLEYING AND JIGGERING
Our dedicated range of products is suitable for all jolleying and jiggering applications.
With a wide range of products for both applications, Saint-Gobain Formula can evaluate customer needs and propose the best solution to achieve mould life requirement and production flexibility (depending on production organisation, process habits or tableware series size).
