Summary

Adherence of electrostatically-applied no-pickle, no-nickel ground coat and two-coat, one-fire porcelain enamels was determined for nine cold rolled, decarburized, and interstitial-free sheet grades. The bond developed with all decarburized steels was excellent and superior to that with cold rolled steel. Deoxidation practice used to produce decarburized steel did not affect adherence, and variations in bond sometimes encountered with conventional enamels requiring metal preparation were completely avoided when no-pickle, no-nickel powders were used. Interstitial-free steel can be enameled with available powder enamel systems, but frit selection, application, and firing require greater control. Decarburized steel produced from continuously cast slabs is especially well suited for use with today's powder enameling systems.
