As this cone 6 melt flow test demonstrates, the Fusion F-12 is giving very similar performance to the Ferro. The GR6-A recipe is just 80% Ravenscrag Slip and 20% frit (10% zircopax has also been added to opacify). The degree-of-melt on the glazed tiles in also very similar, however notice that some of the whiteness has been lost on the second F-12 tile (the first is frit 3134). We are attributing this to the better melting of F-12, that is amplifying the color of iron present in the Ravenscrag Slip. For the third tile we reduced the frit to 15%, that has whitened it somewhat. Likely an increase in the zircon and would whiten it more.
