The large variety of clays available from our quarries is our point of departure for the development of raw material concepts for ceramics and advanced clay minerals. Customer projects may have the objective of developing a raw material mixture or body composition for direct use at the customer's plant.
On the other hand, our application technology department also deals with projects for customers intending to optimize their existing raw material concepts by means of targeted raw material additions. By adding carefully selected special clays from the wide range of products of Stephan Schmidt Group, we succeed in enhancing the specific properties of our customers' products.
The concept proposals worked out by our experts are tested on a laboratory scale at the customers' and then confirmed by means of a reliable industrial trial.
In case of need, well-practiced experts of Stephan Schmidt Group attend the industrial trials and optimise the results in collaboration with the customer on the spot.
