CALCIUM PHOSPHATE (Calcined Bone and Bone Ash)

ca: FOSFAT DE CALCI (Os calcinat, Cendra d'Os)

es: FOSFATO DE CALCIO (Hueso calcinado, Ceniza de Hueso)

Calcium phosphate is a body flux prepared from animal bone and essential for producing the translucency in bone china (up to 50%). If used in large quantities it reduces plasticity and workability and because of this it is used for casting processes.
