Summary

Some fundamental metallurgical and chemical factors involved in glass-metal reactions are reviewed in light of their effect on physical properties of glass-coated steel. Steel compositions, steel-treating procedures, and some electrochemical and thermodynamic data for oxides in enamel compositions are discussed in relation to enamel defects and adherence.
