Summary

The current practices for enameling cast iron are hardly different from earlier methods. There has been little research and development in the past 20 to 25 yr, primarily because the range industry has converted to steel parts. However, interest has again turned to enameling by the wet-process method on such cast-iron products as cast-iron cookware, wood stoves, cast-iron pipe, plumbing ware, etc.
