Washington Mills Mullite: Purity is our Priority

Not every mullite is the same and purity levels can vary from one supplier to another. You may or may not know that the fused mullite Washington Mills produces is a higher purity mullite than what most other suppliers manufacture. Other mullites can contain cristobalite and a glass phase. They can also contain titania, iron, alumina, silica and free silica. Washington Mills fused mullite is 99% mullite and 1% alumina. This high level of purity makes our mullite virtually free of impurities. A high purity mullite performs better at higher temperatures since it is free from the impurities that can 1) lower the softening temperature and 2) leach out and diffuse into your products unnecessarily.
