Summary

To produce high quality, low cost porcelain enameled parts, much work is essential before you can even think of completing specifications or obtaining dies. You must consider the type of metal, the strength required of it, welding, the shape the metal must take, and its enamelability. The many decisions involved require the knowledgeable input of the designers, the metal suppliers, the frit suppliers, and so on.
