Summary

The study of water in glass and its impact on phase separation and chemical durability is an important research area for ceramic glazes. Water-containing raw materials and reactions associated with oxygen smelting were studied. An alkali boroaluminosilicate glass has been developed for use in a ceramic glaze. In some cases, customers require the boron solubility of frit in an acid solution, as measured by the British Toys test method, to be below a certain threshold. This paper describes the impact of raw materials, smelting conditions, and glass formulation on this measure of chemical durability.
