Once you have decided that using a clay additive will be the best solution for your production problem, you have to decide what quantity is the best for your specific production process.
Each process varies, but we can say that generally the addition rate for structural bricks manufacturing is about 0.4% - 0.5% liquid conditioner. However, it might be slightly higher or lower depending on the source of the clay, its source and the clay preparation process of each factory. So, we recommend to do a small lab scale trial to optimize the dosage for your specific clay or to contact our experts before carrying out a trial at a production scale.
We wrote an article about plasticity measurements that you may be interested in and will explain a bit how to carry out the different tests in a lab. In any case, we recommend to ask an expert and he or she will suggest to you the best way to use additives in your production.
