Reliable feldspar deliveries
The feldspar group of minerals is particularly widespread throughout the world, as it contains half of all minerals in the earth's crust. The feldspar mineral group is divided into two further groups: potassium feldspar and plagioclase.
Potassium feldspars are characterised by their high sodium and potassium content, while plagioclase is extremely rich in calcium and sodium. The feldspar types vary both in their chemical composition and in their original melting temperature, which is considerably higher in plagioclase. Feldspar sand, also called pegmatite, consists of quartz and kaolin in addition to feldspar.
Thanks to its white-firing properties, this sand is often used in the manufacture of porcelain, tiles and sanitary ceramics.

EKC.AG: Use of feldspar
Feldspar is particularly popular in the ceramic industry. In addition to quartz and kaolin, feldspar is an important component of porcelain production. The mineral is also used in glass production, for example as a sintering and melting agent. The insulation industry uses the mineral feldspar in the production of mineral wool, while the electrical industry uses this material as an insulator.
