Summary

Various after-the-fact porcelain enamel defects as discussed: surface laminations, melt blisters, outgassing as a result of base metal carbon, fishscale, warpage and/or sag of ware, surface contaminants, and rust. The discussion looks at these porcelain enamel problems as steel related defects. Although due to steel problems, they are not necessarily related to defective steel. The need to purchase the correct steel for the end use application is discussed.
