How do we produce enamel house numbers?
Far from simple to manufacture they take a considerable amount of savoir-faire and time. The enamel is known as vitreous enamel. Vitreous is actually derived from the Latin word vitreum meaning glass and enamel comes from the old French word esmail.
Vitreous enamel is a glass produced by a blend of minerals including quartz and feldspar which are then broken down into powder form. The powder is fused with water and other minerals and then applied onto steel at a firing temperature of 850 degrees Centigrade.
The finished enamel product is easy to maintain and clean.
