A fiber which can be added to clay bodies to increase wet strength. Especially useful for hand building large slab forms, the fibers create an inner structure in the clay allowing for easier handling of larger slabs. The fibers are approximately 1/2 inch long and burn out during firing.
Recommended use: add 1.5%-2% by weight. Fibers are most easily added to dry mix, but can be wedged into wet clay if necessary.
Sold per pound.
