Summary

Detailed below is the enameling process practiced at Vermont Castings. The author begins with the castings, which are all produced by a Disamatic 2070 molding machine, and follows them through blasting with iron grit, ground coating, and cover coating application including cover coat types (opaque and majolica) and firing times and temperatures to achieve proper fired thickness.
