Abstract

This paper reports an investigation on the effect of calcinations activity on the Bidor kaolin. Representative sample of Bidor kaolin and commercial kaolin of high purity were studied. Calcinations of samples are carried out for 3 hours from temperature of 450°C to 1050°C. The samples were evaluated by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) and Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX) analysis in order to determine their morphology and structural differences. Results indicated that at certain degree of calcinations, the well crystallized kaolinite in Bidor kaolin has transformed into more disordered metakaolin.
