The low grade domestic kaoline, such as pink-C and white-D, was converted to metakaoline, which has pozzolanic reactivity by heat treatment in the temperature range of $600^{\circ}C$ to 100$0^{\circ}C$ for preparing the spacer. The spacer was used for supporting the reinforced steel rod during construction to improve the safety of architecture. Pink-C and white-D were completely dehydroxylated when burnt at 80$0^{\circ}C$ for 1 hour and converted to metakaoline. The compressive strengths of specimens added calcined pink-C were lower than those of press molding mortar products inspite of calcining conditions. When white-D with calcined 80$0^{\circ}C$ and 100$0^{\circ}C$ for 1 hour was mixed 30% in the weight ratio of cement, the specimens cured 28 days had 338 $kg/cm^2$ and 347 $kg/cm^2$ of compressive strengths, respectively.
