Poker Chip Terms


clay composite

(adj). These are poker chips that are comprised of (1) a substantial amount of clay AND (2) a substantial amount of non-clay material (such as sand). While it is true that all chips are technically "clay composite" (since no chips in recent time are "100% clay" anymore), the term "clay composite" only refers to chips that have a substantial amount of both clay and non-clay. Hence, true clay chips are not considered "clay composite" since they contain almost all clay. And ABS plastic chips (which are also labeled as clay composite) are also not considered "clay composite" since they contain so little clay.
