Ti and Fe in kaolin clay

AppNote XRF1187: analysis of titanium and iron in kaolin clay

Background

Kaolin clay has many uses, from pottery and ceramics, to coated paper and as an additive in toothpastes and cosmetics. The titanium and iron present affects the color and physical properties of the clay, and so must be closely monitored throughout QA/QC processes to ensure proper ratios for each given product type. A fast and simple means of measuring titanium and iron is very important, and Rigaku meets this challenge with the NEX QC benchtop EDXRF analyzer. Rugged, simple and intuitive, the NEX QC offers the analysts or technician a fast means of monitoring elemental composition with minimal sample preparation.
