Porcelain enamels are used by all major appliance manufacturers and can be formulated to satisfy the wide variety of requirements demanded by the appliance industry. Today’s porcelain coatings are customized for the appliance manufacturers so that they are suitable for specific, highly automated manufacturing operations. porcelain enamel coatings are as durable as stainless steel but cost less and satisfy not only the functional requirements of the industry but also, importantly, allow manufacturers to develop fashionable appliances.
For cooking ranges, porcelain enamel coatings are resistant to thermal shock, able to withstand high temperatures over long periods of time, and resist bacteria growth better than other home appliance finishes. The colors of porcelain enamel coatings are developed along with industry designers to enhance the all-important visual appeal of the appliance on both the overall exterior and in the inner oven cavities. Porcelain enamel coatings are scratch and acid/alkali resistant and can be developed specifically to possess different attributes, such as pyrolytic properties, or to provide an easy-to-clean surface for the oven top or cavity.
Water heaters and boilers are traditionally glass-lined, with porcelain enamel fired onto the interior of the steel tank. The glass coatings used in the enameling process are formulated to resist the corrosive effects of pressurized hot water.
Porcelain enamels have a long history of being successful coatings for the tank industry. New generations of these porcelain coatings exist for both commercial and residential usages.
