I.F.P. (celsius) - IFP

This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.


This is quoted in frit data, however we are not sure what it means yet.

It could be: Point of transformation (TP)
The beginning of softening (DEB) for a heating rate of 10°C/min. The measuring is carried out on glass pieces, which are melted under application condition. For this reason different values might be obtained regarding matt frits, caused by different crystal growth depending on heating and cooling rates.
