What is ceramic enamel frit used for?

Available in a variety of colors to harmonize or contrast with the vision area, the ceramic enamel frit is applied to the surface of the glass. Ceramic 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 ceramic enamel frit is durable and resists scratching, chipping, peeling, fading and chemical attacks.

Does Industrial Enamel Paint Need a Primer or a Topcoat or Both

Industrial enamel paints on their own are already quite resistant but there are quite a few instances where applying a topcoat after the paint job or preparing the surface beforehand with a primer can be useful or even necessary. A lot of times using both can be a good idea too. In this article, I will go over the use cases of topcoats and primers, when to use them, and what they actually do to protect your paint job.

So in short, industrial enamel paints do sometimes need a topcoat or a primer and in some cases even both. If the painted object is supposed to be outside then sealing the industrial enamel paint with a topcoat will ensure the longevity of the paint. Some materials, like metal or plastic, require a primer to ensure that the paint sticks to the material.

Industrial enamel paint generally leaves a smooth, glossy, and appealing look after drying up.

However, depending on the type of surface and temperature of the room or area, it may be advisable to apply both a primer and a topcoat.

For instance, industrial enamel paint looks great on wood when used alone but a touch of primer helps it to stand the test of time and prevent the paint from flaking and cracking in the long run.
