Vitreous enamel is the result of fusing powdered glass to a surface, such as cast iron, by firing it at an extremely high heat in a furnace at temperatures between 750 and 850 degrees centigrade. It is the firing process that gives vitreous enamel its unique combination of quality and durability.
Vitreous enamel has many excellent properties. It is smooth, hard, chemically resistant, durable, can be blended into brilliant, long-lasting colours, and cannot burn.
The vitreous enamel comes in 24 standard colours. In addition to these, at Kingfisher we will do our best to match any colour you request and can even produce decorative designs and patterns. A selection of the key classic colours is shown below.
Samples of all our colours can be provided upon request.
