Ceramic Glaze is applied by fusing to the vase or bottle’s body as a vitreous coat through firing. It is comprised of a ceramic flux which works by promoting partial liquefaction in the applied material. This glaze also consists of silica that acts as the main glass former and metal oxides including calcium, potassium, & sodium which work as flux for lowering the melting temperature. It serves as a base material for color and as waterproof material as well.
Frit Glaze is matured at the temperature below 1150 degrees Celsius and is fused in a special fusing oven resulting in the formation of granulated glass. It can be availed as blue frit manufactured from quartz, lime, copper, & alkali flux and as malachite green frit. This is used for rendering soluble materials, improving process safety of toxic materials, to improve melt predictability, and to supply boron as a principle flux in ceramic processes.
Transparent Frit Glaze
Transparent Frit Glaze is manufactured by the ceramic glass which is premixed from raw powdered minerals melted & cooled by quenching in water. It assures excellent fired quality, lower melting temperature, smooth surface, and lower thermal expansion. With the combination of frit & type of additive, it can produce infinite effects on the applied surface. Frit improves the quality of decoration, achieve homogeneity in the melt, avoid volatilization of gases during decomposition, and provide consistency & repeatability in production.
