Summary

Localized heat-treating of surface defects in whitewares Is an attractive possibility because It eliminates the need for a further oven-firing step. This paper describes an experimental whitewares surface glazing method using a CO2-CW laser of 10W. Some techniques are described to avoid excessive peak temperatures and toss of filling material.
