Porcelain frit is a crucial component in decorating enamels, determining the firing behavior, appearance and in-service performance for the decoration.
Porcelain frit selection for particular application and firing conditions, as well as use environment, is an engineering compromise. The best choice must simultaneously optimize several properties that depend on the glass chemistry and structure in subtle and often opposing ways.
Decorators are encouraged to discuss their specific needs with their enamel supplier to reach the best solution, rather than assume that a general-formulation enamel will be able to do multiple jobs.
