Binders are substances that improve the mechanical resistance of raw ceramic bodies to prevent them from breaking during the various production stages before reaching the kiln. In many cases, the addition of binders to ceramic bodies is of essential importance because some production processes would not be possible without them.
When pressing powder, for instance, the addition of binding agents allows a forming method that does not depend on plasticity.
Our binders provide optimal adhesion to the ceramic surface in glazes and engobes, improving rheological properties and avoiding any kind of sedimentation.
To reduce environmental impact as far as possible, we have recently developed binding agents with an extra low content of formaldehyde so as to strengthen our company’s green vision.
