Description

Kaolinite is a layered silicate clay mineral that forms from the chemical weathering of feldspar or other aluminum silicate minerals. It is usually white, with occasionally a red color impurity due to iron oxide, or blue or brown from other minerals. Kaolinite has a low shrink-swell capacity and a low cation-exchange capacity, making it ideal for many industrial applications.

Uses

During 2013, 48% of Kaolin was used in paper production, and 52% was used for ceramics, light bulbs, paint, rubber, adhesives, smoking pipes, whitewash in masonry, absorbents, and in soap. Within organic farming, kaolinite is used as a form of pest control. It is an active ingredient within medicines for diarrhea, nausea, and other digestive issues.
