Summary

Enamels applied to steel have characteristics similar to bimetallic strips. The stresses induced during firing have a very practical value and can be beneficial to the after-fired strength of the enameled article. Understanding the limitations of the strains and stresses in enamels will aid in controlling the movement of parts exposed to high temperatures, such as oven liners and range tops.
