Summary

This history of the use of porcelain enamel in electronics begins at the beginning—before the existence of the relatively new term electronics. It follows the use of porcelain enamel through the fifties (in “headers” developed by The Erie Ceramic Arts Co.), the sixties (in its ability to be used in electrophoresis deposition and in its use in ozone generators and flash bars), the seventies (in its use on ceramic coated metal substrates), and into the eighties where its use in a multitude of applications in as many industries seems rivaled only by the strength of the competition for the market.
