Ceramics are indispensable in our homes and buildings in general; tableware, sanitary ware, tiles, floor tiles, pipes, and refractory bricks are all 100% industrial minerals used to produce them.

Almost all industrial minerals are used to make ceramic bodies, though in varying proportions according to the application.

The glazes that cover them, making them attractive or simply fit for use, are largely composed of minerals. One of the indispensable minerals for glaze production is kaolin, thanks to its important properties such as plasticity, shrinkage (after drying and on firing), color on firing, and refractoriness.

Technological developments in the ceramic sector are an area in which industrial minerals are at the forefront of progress. Being made of minerals, the properties of these new ceramics are obviously tightly dependent upon those of their raw materials, and purity requirements are becoming increasingly stringent. Our kaolins, with their very bright firing colors, guarantee an optimal, highly transparent-to-colored appearance of your glazes. Thanks to the low iron and titanium values, our Kaolin grades are characterized by a very white firing color and low alkali content. The kaolin types in this series have special, improved properties in terms of rheology, plasticity, and fragmentation – a clear advantage for the dominant production technologies, such as isostatic press molding and die casting.

In addition to kaolin, Ground Calcium Carbonate and Dolomite also find crucial applications in ceramics. Calcium Carbonate contributes to ceramic formulations by enhancing properties such as hardness, opacity, and dimensional stability. It is commonly used in glazes and as a filler in ceramic bodies.


Dolomite serves as a valuable mineral in ceramics, offering improved hardness and resistance to high temperatures. It is utilized in the production of refractory bricks and ceramic tiles.


TLD Vietnam provides a diverse range of essential industrial minerals, including Kaolin, Calcium Carbonate, and Dolomite. We ensure a reliable supply for ceramic manufacturers, precisely meeting the specific needs of each customer.
