The porcelain enamel on steel is made of natural, inorganic raw materials, environmentally friendly with the following qualities:
Does not harbor germs or retain bacteria.
Resists heat and fire.
Does not rust or corrode in damp environment.
It is colorfast, odorless and non-toxic.
Easy to clean and maintain.
Also known as Vitreous Enameled steel, it’s production started as a blend of minerals smelted in much the same manner as common glass. During this process, the red-hot molten mixture is poured from a smelter and quenched between water-cooled rollers. This quick cooled ribbon of glass is then shattered forming a particulate known as “frit.” Frit is applied to metal using either a wet or dry method and fired at very high temperatures ranging from 1100 to 1600 F. While in the furnace, the frit melts bonding with the metal to create more than a coating. It forms an inseparable compound merging the chemical make up of the frit and the steel.
Porcelain Enameled Steel is a good surface for a great variety of applications, including bathroom partitions, kitchen appliances, stoves, refrigerators, grills, elevator walls, operating room walls, writing surfaces, ceilings, decks, column covers, etc.
