Here at W.G Ball we have been producing Vitreous Enamel since 1954, predominately for the Jewellery industry. Vitreous enamel has many useful properties for carrying out a variety of tasks…. it is hard, smooth, durable, has long lasting colour, cleans easily and cannot burn, making it the perfect material for the Jewellery industry as well as many other industries! Also, as enamel is glass and not paint, it doesn’t fade over time!
The fact that Vitreous Enamel cannot burn is one of the main reasons that it is used to produce the globally recognisable London Underground signs. Following the Kings Cross fire in 1987, where combustible materials underground were the main cause, using Vitreous Enamel to produce these signs become the norm.
At W.G Ball we stock over 130 beautifully vibrant colours of Vitreous Enamel powder including reds, blues, oranges, greens and violets. We stock both Transparent and Opaque Vitreous Enamel.
