Gold Art Clay Resco Products

MineralsThe Hillsborough deposit located in the “Piedmont” of North Carolina has been producing consistent ore since it opened in 1958. A unique blend of the mineral andalusite and massive grain pyrophyllite increases the refractoriness of the natural combination. The purity of this beneficiated pyrophyllite ore makes it an excellent source for alumina and silica in high temperature formulations. Piedmont Minerals has been a staple raw material in refractory mixes, and many other high temperature ceramic applications. Piedmont Minerals ships by bag, super sack, pneumatic tanker truck, and railcar.

Classification and blending at the mine allow for versatile chemical and mineralogical classes of products. Our product families contain: Alkatrol©, Andafrac©, Pyrofrac©, Pyrophyl©, Pyrotrol©.  Our Pyrophyllite and Andalusite offerings vary from refractories to aesthetic coatings; our unique mineral deposit provides numerous solutions to improve your products.  The spectrum of uses for the unique pyrophyllite ore from Resco is vast. Originally sourced as a refractory raw material; milling and air separation make it an excellent option for ceramic bodies in tile, brick, fine ceramics, and pottery.
