Transparent frits are made from crushed, screened, and magnetically cleaned compatible sheet glass.
Use transparent frit in frit tinting, kiln-casting and related techniques, or add decorative splashes of color in fusing projects. Fine grain transparent frit ranges in size from 0.2 to 1.2mm, medium grain frit ranges in size from 1.2 to 2.7mm, and coarse grain transparent frit ranges in size from 2.7 to 5.2mm. Extra large transparent frit, available in clear only, ranges in size from 5.2 to 30mm.
Transparent frit comes in reusable wide mouth jars.
Available in a variety of colors to harmonize or contrast with the vision area, the porcelain enamel frit is applied to the surface of the glass.
Porcelain enamel frits contain finely ground glass mixed with inorganic pigments to produce a desired color. The coated glass is then heated to about 1,150°F, fusing the frit to the glass surface, which produces a ceramic coating almost as hard and tough as the glass itself.
A fired porcelain enamel frit is durable and resists scratching, chipping, peeling, fading and chemical attacks.

Cadmium pigments are stable, inorganic colouring agents which are produced in a range of rich, vibrant shades of yellow, orange, red, and maroon. Modern day pigments made by our member companies are carefully engineered products manufactured in regulated chemical plants with full Health and Safety and Environmental permits under Responsible Care management and adherence to guidance principles.
These cadmium pigments have a carefully defined and engineered particle size, crystal structure, surface area and surface treatment to ensure they are not only correct for colour but also meet extremely low solubility and other key property limits.
Cadmium Pigments have undergone EU Risk Assessments and are fully EU-REACH registered. These have concluded no risk to people or the environment and are specifically exempted in the Cd compounds entry 048-001-00-5 of Annex VI to CLP. They are classified as non-hazardous with no requirement for any hazard labelling.
