Abstract

Suggests have Bristol board manufactured with kaolin instead of the clay commonly used. Thinks this would increase durability. Marg: "Thank him & say that what we are after is a Bristol board with no kaolin or other matter than the pure fibre--all oxides such as clay etc are reduced by carbon at a high heat hence are an injury."
