New Application of Porcelain Enamel: Tombstone
Enamel was once known as the art of enamel for its beautiful shape and bright colors, and was loved as a daily enamel for its cost-effectiveness and durability, but did you know it can be used for much more than that.
The enamel material has excellent physical and chemical properties of acid resistance, corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance. It can be used as a large enamel warehouse for storing grain in the agricultural field, enamel chemical containers and enamel chimneys in the industrial field, and enamel heat exchangers in power plants. With the advancement of enamel manufacturing technology, it has been widely used in various new fields, such as enamel assembled tanks, enamel linings for water heaters, enamel panels for architectural decoration, and enamel parts for barbecue stoves.
In addition to the new applications mentioned above, there is another use that may well fall below your glasses - enamel tombstones.
Recently, we received an inquiry from a foreign customer who wanted to purchase enamel materials from us for the manufacture of enamel tombstones. Our common tombstones are made of stone. With the passage of time, stone tombstones will be worn away, and some traces will be worn out, making the deceased become "anonymous", and the epitaph will also dissipate in the world. The enamel material has good weather resistance, can maintain its original characteristics for a long time outdoors, and does not fade, and is often used in public buildings (such as building slate, subway passages, etc.). The appearance of enamel tombstones is elegant and clean, which on the one hand meets the aesthetics and needs of modern people, and on the other hand, is also conducive to preservation as cultural relics and materials.
