Casting body 245 is a light to beige coloured firing fine stoneware casting body without chamotte. The recommended firing range is 1000 °C – 1150 °C.
This low sintering casting body is suitable for making garden ceramics and tableware.
The relatively early dense-firing can minimize energy consumption during firing. It is good for combining with throwing body 245.
Casting body 245 is supplied both in powder form (25 kg-bags) as well as readily prepared in liquid form in casting pails.
