Ferro Frit 3289

High barium leadless frit for bright colors, satin finishes

Alternate Names: F3289

Oxide Weight373.91
Formula Weight373.91
This is the chemistry of the material (the formula compares numbers of molecules, the analysis compares them by weight). In glazes, the composite chemistry of the mix is the main factor shaping fired properties (e.g. color, melting temperature, surface). In bodies we are interested in their physical properties (e.g. shrinkage, porosity, strength), these are a product of the mineralogy of the materials.
COLE - Co-efficient of Linear Expansion 8.20
MLRG - Melting Range (C) 1500F
