A model is developed to represent the structure of the mineral component of Troshkovo refractory clays. According to it, a refractory clay particle is an aggregate composed of a crystalline core and an amorphized film around it. Such refractory clays owe their caky character to the colloidal mineral shells that bond the particles into strong aggregates. Mechanical working breaks up the aggregates into a finely divided material and improves the plastic and bonding properties of kaolinite clays.
