The white-firing Hlubany kaolins are characterized by their high plasticity and green strength and are used in the porcelain industry and as a plastic component in white earthenware and stoneware bodies. Moreover, these characteristics also mean that the kaolin is utilised in white- or light-firing tile bodies and in the electroporcelain industry. Special qualities are produced for the sanitaryware industry and for filler applications.
