Features:

  • Vee Gum is a type of suspension agent or thickener used in ceramic glazes. Vee Gum is a form of magnesium aluminum silicate and is commonly used to improve the suspension of particles in glaze formulations.
  • If you're making your own glazes, the ingredients can settle over time, leading to an uneven distribution of particles and affecting the application and appearance of your glaze.
  • By adding Vee Gum to your glaze formulations, you will achieve a more consistent application. Vee Gum helps to thicken the glaze, it increases its viscosity, and reduces settling.
  • Vee Gum is just one option among several suspension agents available in the market, like Bentonite, CMC (Carboxymethyl cellulose) and Epsom salts. Your choice of suspension agent will depend on the specific glaze formulation and desired results.

Details: Vee Gum is a specific type of suspension agent or thickener used in ceramic glazes. Vee Gum is a form of magnesium aluminum silicate and is commonly used to improve the suspension of particles in glaze formulations. When ceramic glazes are mixed, various materials such as clay, fluxes, and colorants are combined with water. These ingredients can settle over time, leading to an uneven distribution of particles and affecting the application and appearance of the glaze. To prevent settling, a suspension agent like Vee Gum is added. Vee Gum helps to thicken the glaze, providing a better suspension of the particles in the liquid. It increases the viscosity of the glaze, reducing settling and allowing for a more consistent application. This results in a more even coating and helps to achieve desired effects such as gloss, texture, and color distribution when the glaze is applied to ceramic pieces. It's important to note that Vee Gum is just one option among several suspension agents available in the market. Your choice of suspension agent depends on the specific glaze formulation and desired results.
