In the traditional ceramic field, during the wet grinding stage liquid mixtures of additives are commonly used to guarantee high solids content (65-72 wt%) and a viscosity low enough to allow the suspension's workability. These characteristics are indispensable for using the new technologies for wet grinding (cylindrical and conical continuous mills) that require only 3-4 h of milling and permit considerable productivity (20 t/h). This work reports a laboratory study on the rheological behavior of whiteware slurries added with binary and ternary deflocculant mixtures.
